The Joint FAO/IAEA Division on Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture in collaboration with 14 Members States has been conducting a Coordinated Research Project (D31029) on “Quantification of intake and diet selection of ruminants grazing heterogeneous pasture using compound specific stable isotopes”. The objective is to develop a practical method to predict pasture intake of ruminants grazing heterogeneous pastures using stable isotopes and NIRS to provide tools for better grassland management that enhance animal productivity and reduces impact on environment due to overgrazing, and to allow the design of effective feed supplementation strategies at farm level to optimize animal production. The objective of the Research Coordination Meeting in Piracicaba, Brazil is to discuss initial results from individual Contract Holders from countries such as Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, China, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Sweden; Uganda and Unite Kingdom.
