Students Land and Water Management at Van Hall Larenstein
We are two Dutch students who came to Spain to do research on holistic grazing and the effects on soil quality. Holistic grazing is a way of grazing in which the cattle eats on different pastures of the farm throughout the year. In the time we are here we will create a system that is both efficient and best for the soil. Other than that, we will set up a monitoring plan to continue our grazing system after we go back to the Netherlands. If the system we design works, rainwater will hopefully infiltrate better and the soil will become more fertile, which results in a more diverse vegetation.
