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.
