SEEGSLIP – Sustainable economic and ecological grazing systems – learning from innovative practitioners

Grassland systems, which dominate the UK agricultural landscape, are largely economically unproductive, ecologically degraded, dominated by a single grass species, organic carbon poor and heavily reliant on inputs to maintain the productivity of both grass and associated livestock.

Pasture for Life (PfL) certified producers feed grass only and have adopted pasture management practices that mimic natural systems using approaches which can potentially extend the grazing season while providing environmental, economic and livestock benefits in terms of health and productivity. This project will holistically evaluate the ecological, agronomic and social impacts of the pasture fed livestock approach to grazing management and its potential.
