Article presents the modes how to use reclaimed lands for purposes of meadow fodder production and recommendations how to obtain feed of exchange energy of at least 10.0–10.5 MJ in 1 kg of dry mass, compositions of meadow herbages which save its productivity despite the method of use. In the case of three cuts legume-cereal herbage with two types of legume grasses (clover creeping and clover meadow) as well as alfalfa formed crop with crude protein of 716–834 kg per ha. Costs of cutting and livestock grazing are shown. Cost structure of coarse feeds are analyzed. Feed amount for cows of 5000–1000 kg milk per year is defined.
