The influence of sward canopy structure on foraging decisions by grazing cattle. I. Patch selection
Patch selection by grazing dairy cows in response to simultaneous variation in combinations of sward structural characteristics was examined in three experiments in which four mature dairy cows wereExpand

Vegetation recovery in rural kahikatea (Dacrycarpus dacrydioides) forest fragments in the Waikato region, New Zealand, following retirement from grazing
Vegetation was sampled in kahikatea (Dacrycarpus dacrydioides)-dominant forest fragments having different recovery periods since grazing ceased in the Waikato region, North Island, New Zealand.Expand

The influence of sward canopy structure on foraging decisions by grazing cattle. II. Regulation of bite depth
Bite depth was measured in four experiments in which grazing cows were offered, individually, patches of perennial ryegrass swards, typically 0·9 m × 0·9 m, of contrasting structural compositionExpand

Selective behaviour in cattle grazing pastures of strips of birdsfoot trefoil and red clover. 1. The effects of relative sward area
Alternate 2·4 m wide strips of a mixture of birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus L.) with white clover (Trifolium repens L.) (BW), and of red clover (Trifolium pratense L.) (RC) were offered in theExpand

Effect of concentration of anal gland scent lures on the capture rate of ferrets (Mustela furo) in winter and spring
Abstract We tested scent lures made from the anal gland secretions of male and female ferrets (Mustela furo L.) at 0.1–2% concentration in “Albert”, a solid, long‐life, casein‐based formulation, asExpand

Selective behaviour in cattle grazing pastures of strips of birdsfoot trefoil and red clover. 2. The effects of sward maturity and structure
The effects of manipulation of sward maturity on ingestive behaviour and diet selection of grazing cattle were tested in two experiments using legumes which are equally preferred by cattle. YearlingExpand
