New project on sustainable sheep farming

The project will investigate means that will contribute to more and added value from the meat and wool produduction, and how the industry can influence media and politicians using this knowlegde, in the discision about sustainability.

What does it take to value meat and wool from sheep more for the future, than it is today?

AMAZING GRAZING will bring new knowledge on how sheep rangeland grazing systems can be part of sustainable food and fiber systems. Meat and wool from Norwegian sheep are from farms managing a diversity of rangeland grazing resources, and thus use different management strategies. In this project, we will study sheep farming systems, consumer understanding of products from these systems, and how national frameworks affect the way farmers and consumers comply.

The project is lead by Lise Grøva, NIBIO.
