FORUT-Nutrient supply and productivity in organic forage and milk production - improved forage production based on local resources
Organic milk production has become more intensive, which has led to increased focus on forage quality. The primary growth (PG) is harvested at an earlier stage of development with the consequence that more than half of the total yearly yield is from the regrowth (RG). The RG contains high proportion of clover. Thus, the RG forage has likely high crude protein content, while the PG forage has high energy value but low protein content.
