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 the sustainability of grazing agroecosystems, while providing several ecosystem services. 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 the U.S. Gulf Coast region will be summarized in this presentation.
