Call for abstracts EGF 2015

Monday, October 6, 2014

The Netherlands Society for Grassland and Fodder Crops  will be held from the 15th to the 17th of June, 2015, in Wageningen, the Netherlands.

The theme of this Symposium is “Grassland and forages in high output dairy farming systems”.

Many countries are currently exploring the possibilities and constraints of scaling up and intensification of animal production systems. The issue of food security is asking for high output from agricultural systems. A major question is the extent to which societal demands, such as animal welfare and grazing, can be met in intensified production systems. Will further optimization of grassland management enhance profitability and reduce environmental pressure of farming systems?

Interested parties and individuals are warmly invited to submit abstracts under either one of the three subthemes of the Symposium:

  •         Different high output dairy farming systems in Europe
  •         Grassland and fodder crops in high output systems
  •         High output and high (eco)efficiency

Papers that do not fit within one of these subthemes will not be accepted. The focus of the Symposium is the European context.

Instructions for abstract submission can be found on the website The deadline for submitting abstracts is 17 November 2014.
