Extract

Churra Tensina is a coarse-wooled hardy breed usually managed in semi-extensive systems in Spanish Pyrenees. Grazing natural meadows in spring together with lambing season could be involved in the alternatives of its production system. The aim of this experiment was to study the effect of dietary supplementation of lambs on grazing behaviour of Churra Tensina ewes and their lambs during lactation in natural meadows.
