Project: Effect of sward composition and quality and supplementation on methane emission by grazing cattle.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-99 – 15-MAR-01
- The rumen fermentation of ruminants is responsible for large amounts of methane emission. The project aims to quantify simultaneously the effect on N-efficiency ant methane production by grazing cattle of N-fertilization rate, growth stage of the grass, growing season, sward composition and supplementation with maize.
