Forages and Beef

Forages

Scientists are developing new germplasm and utilizing novel technologies to understand forage/ruminant interaction at the molecular and metabolic level and their impact on the productivity of beef, dairy and sheep production systems.

Successful solutions

  • Developed and commercialized forage cultivars (alfalfa, red clover, birdsfoot trefoil and timothy) adapted to our changing climate for use in livestock production.

  • Developed new mixtures for pasture grasses and legumes to increase livestock productivity by 25%.
