A greater use of grass in the fodder and feed systems is a preponderant axis for the sustainability of the goat milk farms in front of economic constraints and societal expectations: increase of concentrate feed costs, strengthening of the fodder autonomy for cheeses with official quality label (PDO, Organic farming), animal welfare, environmental protection, preservation of cheeses quality and naturality. Even though grazing is a much studied topic in animal feed, little research has been done on animal product processing and quality assessments.
