ALONSO, J. Agro-ecological principles in Cuban technologies with legumes for animal production. Cuban J. Agric. Sci. [online]. 2016, vol.50, n.2, pp.171-183. ISSN 0864-0408.

Different ecological principles are analyzed, which should be included on the management and exploitation of Cuban cattle agricultural systems. These systems are characterized by the use of grasses and forages as main basis of their feeding systems. It is important the use of shrubs and creeping legumes in technologies that favor biological diversity, soil restoration and agricultural-animal husbandry integration, as strategy for the development of a more profitable and ecologically stable livestock activity. Finally, an evaluation is carried out to the need of developing animal production systems in tropical areas that visualize the approach to natural systems as a real and practical alternative for persistence, sustainability and environmental regulation of animal husbandry agro-ecosystems

Keywords : agro-ecology; grazing systems; animal production.
