Comparison of some methods for calculation of animal stocking rates in Mediterranean pastures


Comparison of some methods for calculation of animal stocking rates in Mediterranean pastures



Herba 2002(13): 39-46



The availability of analytical quality indices of forage species has improved calculations of animal stocking rates in pastures. Several improved methods have been developed from the classical formula that calculates stocking rate only on the bases of the forage biomass weight. In tropical and subtropical climates, the Ponderal Contribution method is preferred because it gives a reliable prediction with simplicity.
