Grazed plants by Wagyu cattle and weeding of Miscanthus sinensis by grazing in young Cryptomeria japonica and Chamaecyparis obtusa plantation






Bulletin of the Faculty of Agriculture, Miyazaki University 40(2): 113-119

Grazed plants by Wagyu cattle and weeding of Miscanthus sinensis by grazing in young Cryptomeria japonica and Chamaecyparis obtusa plantation

Wagyu cattle were grazed between May and September or October in 3- to 5-yr-old conifer plantations at Miyazaki University Forests, SE Kyushu. A study was made of the plant species grazed or browsed, and the effect of grazing on Miscanthus sinensis biomass in autumn. The understorey was composed of about 71 families and 176 species, of which 33 families and 66 species were grazed or browsed. Plants consistently eaten by the cattle were Miscanthus sinensis, Ficus erecta and Mallotus japonicus.

About 5- to 6-yr-old plants were sensitive to frost. Visible injury was ob...

Non-destructive estimation of basal area and biomass of Miscanthus sinensis grass plants. Using regression analysis, a set of equations for estimating Miscanthus sinensis basal area and the mass of 7 categories of plant tissue was obtained. It is suggested that the technique described is of potential value for non-destructive estimatio...

In 1996 and 1997, a young plantation of Chamaecyparis obtusa (4-8 years old, plant density 2600/ha) was grazed with Japanese Black heifers. Grazing time of the animals averaged 546 min/day, ranging from 437 to 634 min. It decreased from May to Aug...
