Grazing is not a black and white story

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractAcademic


The trend of less grazing in Europe is expected to continue. Is this a matter of concern? This depends on your point of view. The grazing system affects various aspects like grassland productivity, animal welfare, environment, economy, labour and even society. Grazing has advantages and disadvantages (see Table 1). Grazing is certainly not a black and white story! The discussion on grazing should therefore not be focused on one or two aspects only, but on the full picture. The importance attached to the various effects of grazing is very personal.
