In order to promote sustainable and competitive ruminant production systems, the European Multisward project was aimed at improving farmer trust in grassland and grassland mixtures. A questionnaire on grassland functions was submitted in eight languages, in order to better understand the importance of grassland functions for all the stakeholders involved (farmers, policy decision-makers, researchers, farming advisors, students, teachers, private companies and NGOs). Over 2,000 replies were received. The 3 aspects of sustainability were classified as follows: Economic aspects > ecological aspects > social aspects, with varying results per country and type of stakeholder. Grassland functions are widely recognized and appreciated by all the players involved, emphasizing the importance of grassland in Europe.
