Grass height for finishing cattle

Occasional Symposium, British Grassland Society (22): 232-234

Grass height for finishing cattle

170 cattle were grazed on a Lolium perenne/Trifolium repens sward in 1985 at an initial stocking rate of 2300 or 3100 kg liveweight/ha to give mean sward surface heights of 10 or 7 cm and in 1986 at 1600 or 2000 kg liveweight/ha to give similar sward surface heights.
