Bearing capacity for grazing in connection with the rewetting of fens

Zeitschrift fur Kulturtechnik und Landentwicklung 36(3): 162-164

Bearing capacity for grazing in connection with the rewetting of fens

Limits of bearing capacity for grazing (critical values of penetration resistance) were determined in connection with groundwater measurements on two fenland sites in Germany (Havelluch and Dummer). The limits of bearing capacity without any trampling damage of the sward were 600 and 800 kPa, depending on the weight of cattle (300 to 500 kg per head).
