The economy in production of milk and beef is very much dependent on the availability of big quantities of roughage of the best possible quality. Grass and clovergrass is the cow's natural feed and with the use of modern grass and clover varieties, modern techniques for establishement, maintenance and utilisation of grass fields and good feeding practices, it is possible to obtain a high production of milk or beef.
This guide is a roundup of some important aspects of grass production. Focus is on quality in the broad sense of the word – from the correct choice of mixture via establishment and harvest to storing and feeding. This guide is meant to be a short introduction to the topics, for further reading we recommend the titles mentioned in the literature list.
