The aim of the study was to determine the amount of crude protein yield and the yield of feed units in the fodder biomass of six variants of two-component legume-grass mixtures (Lotus corniculatus - Festuca rubra; Trifolium repens - Lolium perenne; Trifolium repens - Poa pratensis; Trifolium pretense - Phleum pretense; Medicago sativa - Dactylis glomerata; Trifolium pretense - Festuca pratensis) that would provide high-quality fodder in the conditions of the Central Balkan Mountain. The highest crude protein yield is for the mixtures Tr. pratense L. + F. pratensis L. and Tr. repens L. + P. pratensis L. The legume crop predominated in the regrowths of both variants during the entire experimental period from 7.4% to 48.4%, respectively, and the ratio of legume:grass in the mixed grass stands was 47.7:40.3% (Tr. pratense L. - F. pratensis L.) and 62.3:13.9% (Tr. repens L.- P. pratensis L.). A proven difference in crude protein yield was found between Tr. repens L. - P. pratensis L. and M. sativa L. - D. glomerata L. mixtures. The highest yield of feed units for milk and growth was found in the forage mixture of Tr. pratense L. with Ph. pratense L.
