Studies show that animals grazed on multiple species have a 15 percent lower carbon footprint than animals reared on ryegrass

Multispecies Sward animals have an approximately 15 percent reduced carbon footprint compared to animals bred on perennial ryegrass, according to rigorous research at UCD’s Lyons Farm.

r Helen Sheridan, associate professor at the UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science, says several studies on the effects of multispecies turf — including perennial ryegrass, timothy, white clover, red clover, chicory and plantain — increased DM production from herbs have shown reduced fertilization inputs, improved animal performance, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, improved economic performance and improved biodiversity (compared to ryegrass monocultures).
