Good pasture management helps the conservation of grasslands

Multimedia pages

The amazing variety of grasses on Gran Sasso's prairies has evolved together with grazing.

Grazing actually helps preserving this land.

Keeping extensive breeding alive means protecting the exceptional heritage of plants and grasses that grow on the pastures.

Too many animals on a pasture cause the - often irreversible - erosion of the greensward. Abandoning the pasture leads to the invasion of trees and shrubs that diminish the natural value of the area, and to the possible loss of habitats that grassland wild fauna needs.

Harmonising grazing practices makes it possible, instead, to preserve the grassland's natural balance.

Pastures are a collective good, to be safeguarded and managed so that they keep being a natural asset, making both the grassland landscape and the breeding products unique.
