This report presents the main results of the third meeting of the EGF Working Group “Grazing”, held in Aberystwyth, UK on 7 September 2014. The aim of the Working Group “Grazing” is to exchange knowledge on all aspects of grazing research and to provide a forum for networking.
The theme of the meeting in Aberystwyth was “The Future of Grazing”. There were five sessions:
• Welcome session / introduction
• Several forward looking views on the future of grazing in Europe
• Developments in forage production
• Current and future economics of grazing
