Netherlands grass monitoring network
Stienezen, M.W.J. ; Remmelink, G.J. ; |Weiden, T. van der; Tjoonk, L. ; Nolles, J.E. ; Voskamp-Harkema, W. ; Pol, A. van den - \ 2016
In: 26th EGF General Meeting on “The Multiple Roles of Grassland in the European Bioeconomy”. - European Grassland Federation EGF (Grassland Science in Europe ) - p. 74 - 76.
To support on farm grazing management in the Netheralnds a grass monitoring was established in 2014. The aim of the network is to share and publish data on grass quality, grass growth and soil temperature in different regions of the Netherlands to serve as a benchmark. Grass quality, sward height and soil temperature were measured weekly during the grazing season of 2014 and 2015 by farmers, researchers and agricultural sutdents. These data were used to calculate grass growth. Thus far grass growth curves of grasslands in the high output dairy farming systems of the Netehrlands were not available. Publishing of the data increased the awareness of farmers on possible improvements of their grassland management, thereby supporting grazing.

Pasture-based dairy systems have several advantages. However, the number of grazing dairy cattle in the Netherlands is decreasing, partly as a result of scaling. Therefore, grazing research focuses on providing farmers, students and advisers with tools to optimize grazing whilst also improving efficiency. The aim of this study was i) to estimate the dry matter intake (DMI) from grazing on commercial dairy farms and the variation of this DMI throughout the season, ii) to estimate the associated feeding costs, and iii) to present this in a practical way. A DMI-dashboard was developed to get day-to-day insight in DMI and feeding costs. It was tested on nine commercial dairy farms. Data show that there was a huge difference in DMI by grazing (800 to 1900 kg DM cow-1 yr-1). The between-farm variation in feeding costs was much larger than the within-year variation and is a good reflection of the differences in DMI by grazing between the different individual farms. By comparing results of individual farms in a network setting, the insight in the effect of grazing increased. This led to increased skills of farmers, students and advisers in optimizing grazing systems.
