The use of grazing control for intensive fat-lamb production. 3. The influence of systems of grazing, severity of grazing and stocking rates
J. Brit. Grassl Soc 19(2): 218-23
3 grazing managements (set stocking, 4-paddock rotation, 8-paddock rotation), each with an undivided lateral creep area, were studied. Each of these managements carried 2 stocking rates (6 ewes and twin lambs/ac, 10 ewes and twin lambs/ac) and the sub-divided managements were grazed at 2 severities of grazing. Stocking rate had a major effect upon the lambs' live weights but did not significantly affect the ewes' live weights.
