Abstract

Livestock forages, especially legumes, are an integral component of sustainable agriculture. But as farms have changed from diversified, integrated crop-livestock enterprises to highly specialized, intensive cash-grain operations, perennial forages have been drastically reduced in Iowa. As livestock and pasture decrease, the risk of soil erosion and associated nutrient and pesticide runoff increases.
