This project aims at understanding how different livestock grazing regimes (such as organic livestock farming, grazing livestock for some period) or lack of grazing affect farmland birds in Finland. Specifically, which grazing practices are most beneficial for farmland birds and why these are beneficial directly and indirectly through food resources? What other factors, such as high cover of grassland and management without pesticides, make animal farms suitable for farmland species?
