Herbage production of Mediterranean grassland under seasonal and yearlong grazing systems



Herbage production of Mediterranean grassland under seasonal and yearlong grazing systems



Journal of Range Management 43(1): 64-68



Data from 2 consecutive grazing experiments conducted over 7 years on a Mediterranean type grassland (dominated by Hordeum bulbosum, Echinops spp. and Psoralea bituminosa) in Israel were used to calculate forage consumption by herds of beef cattle maintained at 0.6-0.9 cows/ha (1st trial) and 0.5-0.83 cows/ha (2nd trial) and in different grazing systems (continuous or rotational).
