Estimates of the extent of treading by livestock in a paddock were obtained with an equation relating the total area of treading to the number of times animals crossed a straight reference line, the paddock area and the length of the reference line. Under ideal conditions the total area of treading could be proved to be independent of the length and orientation of the reference line.
