Technical Abstract: Developing sustainable forage-based livestock systems is imperative for minimizing the environmental impact of livestock production. Replacing N fertilizers with forage legumes can increase sustainability, while providing several ecosystem services in grazing operations. Results related to herbage and animal responses, as well as the quantification of water footprint associated with beef production in N-fertilized grass or grass-legume systems in Florida will be summarized.
