Stocking density and production of a supplemented beef herd grazing yearlong on Mediterranean grassland



Stocking density and production of a supplemented beef herd grazing yearlong on Mediterranean grassland



Journal of Range Management 43(6): 535-539



The possibility of attenuating the negative effects of high stocking rate (SR) on animal production by using inexpensive low energy supplements (mainly poultry litter) was examined in a herd of small crossbred cows, grazing yearlong on Mediterranean grassland in the eastern Galilee region dominated by Hordeum bulbosum, Echinops spp., Psoralea bituminosa, Avena sterilis, Bromus spp., Trifolium spp. and Medicago spp.
