AbstractFull Text

The Norwegian beef cattle population has grown steadily over the last ten years, resulting in an increased interest in using coniferous forests as summer grazing areas. We attached collars, programmed to take GPS positions and two-dimensional activity measures every 5 min, to free-ranging beef cows ...

Grassland resources for extensive farming systems in marginal lands: major drivers and future scenarios. Proceedings of the 19th Symposium of the European Grassland Federation, Alghero, Italy, 7-10 May 2017, 2017, pp 239-241
AbstractFull Text

In this study we evaluated the effects of gradual transitioning from indoor winter-feeding to outdoor grazing, 8 to 11 h daily, on methane emission and milk yield in an organic Jersey herd in Denmark. A total of 151 mixed-parity lactating Jersey cows with free access to automated milking stations...

AbstractFull Text

The main aim of this study was to identify potential relationships between chemical compounds (protein, fat, urea) in milk from dairy cattle, milk yield and distinct plant groups in the diet when grazing on alpine rangelands. Two herds in two different summer farming areas were studied during three ...

AbstractFull Text

In Scandinavia, pasture for dairy herds with automatic milking (AM) is frequently offered purely for exercise and recreation, rather than as a feed-source. In the present study, cows in an AM-system with 12 h nightly outdoor-access from summer solstice until mid-September were offered either fresh...

AbstractFull Text

We assessed milk production with 24 mid-lactation Norwegian Red dairy cows on a spring pasture dominated by timothy (Phleum pratense) for a period of 21 days using three pasture allocation techniques (n=8). Cows received weekly allowances at once (7 day-set-paddocking; 7SP), grazed 1/7 of 7SP...

AbstractFull Text

Large areas of cultivated grassland are annually abandoned and no longer used for production in Norway. Such areas will over time be encroached by shrubs and trees, which is regarded as undesirable. We assessed plant community development, pasture production, herbage quality and pasture utilization ...

The multiple roles of grassland in the European bioeconomy. Proceedings of the 26th General Meeting of the European Grassland Federation, Trondheim, Norway, 4-8 September 2016, 2016, pp 235-237
AbstractFull Text

Grassland plays an important role in mitigation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the agricultural sector by sinking carbon (Soussana et al., 2010). Thus, grazing is often essential for maintenance of grassland. Furthermore, grazing has demonstrated positive effects on animal welfare,...

AbstractFull Text

Trampled and muddy surfaces at paddock entrances can create problems with cow traffic and milk quality; therefore causing problems for many dairy farmers. The aim was to assess the benefits of two ground stabilizing materials, bark chips and armoured mats, when compared to taking no action. The...

AbstractFull Text

Legislation in Sweden and Norway requires that dairy cattle have outdoor access in summertime. Pasture utilization can be challenging with high yielding cattle and large herd-sizes. Therefore, many farmers choose to offer their cows access to an exercise- and recreation area only, rather than a...

AbstractFull Text

How can dairy farming contribute to reduce the climate change without compromising food security and farm economy? This is the question the project Life-Dairyclim wants to answer. The project gathers partners from research groups, association of advisory services to farmers and feed industry in...
