Range Management: Principles and Practices
(NOTE: Each chapter concludes with Range Management Principles and Literature Cited.) 1. Rangeland and Man. Rangeland Defined. Range Management Defined. Relationship of Range Management to Other
An approach for setting the stocking rate.
One of the most basic problems confronting the range manager concerns determination of the correct stocking on different ranges. Although this problem has received considerable attention since the
Botanical Composition Determination of Range Herbivore Diets: A Review
Procedures used for estimating the botanical composition of the range herbivore's diet include diet observation, utilization techniques, fistula sampling, and fecal analysis, with the latter emphasizing the more recent information.
Grazing studies: what we've learned.
uring our careers in range management we've enD countered few range professionals who have actually read any of the long-term stocking rate and grazing system studies that provide the scientific
Relationships between Performance, Intake, Diet Nutritive Quality and Fecal Nutritive Quality of Cattle on Mountain Range.
Examination of relationships between cattle performance, intake, diet nutritive quality, and fecal nutritivequality on mountain range in northeastern Oregon during 3 grazing seasons found in vitro organic matter digestibility and nitrogen were the nutritive characteristics receiving evaluation.
Condensed tannins and nutrient utilization by lambs and goats fed low-quality diets.
Reducing CT by adding PEG did not affect N balance or improve nutrient digestion by lambs or goats fed low-quality diets, and ruminal ammonia N was greater in lambs fed PEG-containing or 25% MM diets; however, rate of in situ NDF disappearance was not reduced by the lower ammonia N in the latter diets.
Estimation of stocking rate on New Mexico rangelands
ABSTRACT: Successful range management depends on the selection of the correct stocking rate. Evaluations of the reliability of different stocking rate procedures have not been published, however. In
Evaluation of microhistological analysis for determining ruminant diet botanical composition.
The accuracy of microhistological techniques for analysis of herbivore diets was evaluated with cattle, sheep, and Angora goats fed grass, forb, and shrub mixtures of known botanical compositions with no differences between actual and observed compositions.
Short-Duration Grazing: The Facts in 1999
Short-duration grazing (also called rapid-rotation, timecontrolled, Savory grazing, holistic resource management) was conceived in Zimbabwe by Allan Savory in the 1960's and later introduced into the
Grazing Capacity and Stocking Rate
been increasingly used in range management decisions on both public and private lands in the western United States. They are also becoming more used in developing countries such as South Africa,
