This experiment was carried out to study the responses of sward components (particularly white clover, Trifolium repens) to grazing management in a natural sward dominated by smooth-stalked meadowgrass (Poa pratensis) syn. Kentucky bluegrass. Treatments during two grazing seasons (1989–90) were: cattle grazing alone (C); cattle grazing followed by topping (CT); cattle grazing followed by sheep grazing (CS); and sheep grazing alone (S). Mean target pre- and post-grazing herbage masses were 2200… CONTINUE READING
