Effect of stocking rate and grazing systems on daily gain of cattle grazing hybrid forage sorghums



Effect of stocking rate and grazing systems on daily gain of cattle grazing hybrid forage sorghums



Revista Argentina de Produccion Animal 5(7/8): 419-433



Crossbred zebu steers, 18 months old and weight 280 kg, grazed in 3 periods from 1980 to 1983 on hybrid sorghum. The stocking rate, 3.8 to 9.6/ha, did not affect daily weight gain (DWG). The experimental period and grazing system had significant effect.
