Objectives of the Course
Total deficit of high-quality forage, as well as the middle of the winter and summer peak period and vulnerability to emerging high-quality roughage, as well as green feed chain broken. High plateaus, except for the period from June to September's meadows or completely drying the plants due to high temperature and drought undergo or become dormant. Therefore, it is quite reduced efficiency of pastures during the summer meadow. Efficient and high nutritive value of forage to reduce the deficit, some species of native flora, is also available to be used as fodder. Both families are grasses and legumes as well as other species of plants taking into account the yield and forage quality characteristics of some of the follow-up from the discussion.
