Quantification of the enteric CH4 emissions of ruminants grazing perennial legumes and grasses. Assessment of the production and intake of these forages, as well as, their chemical composition, and digestibility. Nitrogen cycling under grazing, in pastures containing these forages will also be studied, with particular attention to losses from enteric CH4 and the N associated with the Nitrogen fertilization of grasses compared with Biological Nitrogen Fixation by legumes.
