French Pasture Growth Is Close to Normal Levels, Ministry Says

October 10, 2011

Oct. 10 (Bloomberg) -- French grasslands partially recovered from a dry spring with “good” growth in the north, and pasture production for the country is approaching normal levels, the Agriculture Ministry said.

For half the country, growth during the summer months and into September means forage levels are getting close to normal, while in 10 percent of France, output is less than 50 percent of normal pasture production, the ministry said in a report on its website today.
