Combining organic livestock and bioenergy production - A novel trial integrating willow and alder short rotation coppice and cattle

Why combine livestock and energy production?

Agricultural land is subject to many competing demands: for increased food production to meet the needs of a growing world population; for bioenergy production from biomass crops such as short rotation coppice (SRC) to meet renewable energy targets; and the demand for agricultural land to protect the environment including soil, water and air quality, reducing climate change, and supporting biodiversity.
