Innovations and Strenghs: The global objective is to implement a dairy system able to better overcome climatic hazards and have a great nutrient use efficiency. The dairy system is intended to be forage self-sufficient, with no use of irrigation and with a low use of mineral nitrogen fertilizers. The aim is also to allow grazed forage resources to meet 100% of the dairy herd feed requirements in spring (meteorological season), 50% in summer and autumn and 25% in winter.
