Abstract In the period April - October 2011 the research project ‘Herbs in grasslands and health of the dairy herd’ was carried out by the Louis Bolk Institute. In this project the relation between pasture herbs and health of dairy cattle was studied on 22 dairy farms. Participating farmers expressed a special interest in the inclusion of pasture herbs in the cows’ diet to promote the health of their dairy cattle. This study explored the existing knowledge of farmers on herbs used for animal health using the free-lists method.
