A study on behavioural ecology of grazing sheep. II. Influence of grazing time on grazing behaviour

A study on behavioural ecology of grazing sheep. II. Influence of grazing time on grazing behaviour

Acta Prataculturae Sinica 6(2): 7-13

Grazing behaviour of sheep was studied in Inner Mongolia in 1993. At a stocking rate of 1.33 sheep/ha, sheep responded to reduced grazing time by decreasing ruminating time to maintain the period available for foraging. A relatively constant intake was maintained by adjusting grazing speed.
