Beef production from suckler cattle: effect of rotational or continuous grazing on herbage and animal production in Galicia



Beef production from suckler cattle: effect of rotational or continuous grazing on herbage and animal production in Galicia



Pastos 26(2): 229-243



Herbage and animal production were studied in 1990-91 in Mabegondo, Spain, under continuous or rotational grazing in a suckler cattle system with the Rubia Gallega breed. Herbage production was greater under rotational than continuous grazing (8.7 and 6.8 t dry matter/ha, respectively). The liveweight gain of cows and calves was similar in the two treatments (cows 101 and 102 kg/day, calves 1.2 and 1.3 kg/day for rotational and continuous grazing, respectively).
