Have you noticed your cattle browsing hedgerows?

Fill in our on-line questionnaire

We would like to find out more about whether cattle (dairy in particular but also beef) in the UK browse hedgerows, shrubs and trees, as part of the SOLID project researching sustainable dairy farming.

If you have noticed your cattle feeding on trees and shrubs, particularly in hedgerows, we would love to hear about it. We have put together an on-line questionnaire to collect observations this should take about 15-20 minutes to fill in.

We hope that the answers will shed more light on this behaviour. Following on from the questionnaire, we are planning to carry out some more in-depth observational studies on hedgerow browsing - please get in touch with Dr Jo Smith if you are interested in being involved with this research.
