Management of finishing pastures to maximise carcass gain






Proceedings of the New Zealand Grassland Association 56: 67-72

Management of finishing pastures to maximise carcass gain

A specialist finishing pasture consisting of Bromus sitchensis Grasslands Hakari, Cichorium intybus Grasslands Puna, Trifolium repens Grasslands Huia and Trifolium pratense Grasslands Pawera was used for finishing Coopworth ram lambs at the Gore Research Station, Southland, New Zealand during 1991-93. Lamb liveweight and carcass weight gains were measured for periods of 3 to 18 weeks after grazing medium or low quality pastures.
