Abstract
Some properties are now demonstrating that the process of intensification of grazing management is possible once a sufficient base of improved pasture has been established. Sale stock and dry sheep, including wethers, are being used to achieve by intensive grazing management the improvement of such pastures for the benefit of productive ewe flocks and young stock. What policy is adopted by the individual runholder to progress out of his dilemma will vary from property to property. The important thing for all to realise is that unless some whole-run grazing management system is evolved to get through this transitional problem phase, the runholder is trapped in a high cost and relatively low production situation with which neither he nor his advisers can be long content.
