Herbage mass and grazing system effects on lamb production from tall fescue



Herbage mass and grazing system effects on lamb production from tall fescue



Dissertation Abstracts International, B Sciences and Engineering 47(3): 864B



In spring and summer of 1983-84, lambs grazed Festuca arundinacea with their dams until weaning in Aug. or were given access via creep gates to high-quality Medicago sativa/Bromus inermis sp. pastures. F. arundinacea production did not differ between grazing systems. F. arundinacea DM intake by ewes did not differ between grazing systems but increased as herbage mass increased.
