There is a renewed interest in sustainable use of grassland for beef production. To meet the renewed interest, a team of USDA-ARS, West Virginia University and Virginia Tech scientists is developing practices to produce market-ready beef entirely on pasture and forage in the Appalachian Region. The present program is focused on sustainable forage-beef cattle systems, with emphasis on production, economic, and environmental aspects.
