Three 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 per acre, 10 ewes and twin lambs per acre) and the subdivided managements were grazed at 2 severities of grazing. Stocking rate had a major effect upon the lambs' liveweights but did not significantly affect the ewes' liveweights.
