Modelling the impact of changing the decision to graze from rotation length to ryegrass leaf-stage


Modelling the impact of changing the decision to graze from rotation length to ryegrass leaf-stage



Proceedings of the New Zealand Grassland Association 68: 275-281



We used modelling to test the hypothesis that rotation length based on the emergence of three live leaves per ryegrass tiller (3-leaf principle) would result in greater pasture production, and increased milk production and profit per hectare than rotations based on standardised decision rules (best management practice; BMP). This hypothesis was tested using a computer program designed to model the interactions between climate, paddocks, animals and management policies.
