The temperate forage legumes, white clover (Trifolium repens) and red clover (Trifolium pratense), are increasingly important components of more sustainable agricultural practices in the livestock sector. Novel germplasm and the application of modern technologies allow the development of improved approaches to the improvement of forage quality in these species. This paper will outline how transdisciplinary research can be employed to complement more traditional approaches to improve quality. Particular attention will be given to routes for manipulating protein content in white and red clover and levels of oestrogens in red clover
