Three grasslands grazed
during winter from 2004 to 2009 were divided into 24 paddocks of 0.405 ha.
"It is only after these options are exhausted that the animal is euthanised however this is becoming increasingly difficult, both regionally and nationally, due to the number of horses being grazed
illegally or abandoned.
Paddocks were generally grazed
January through May using cows calving between January and March -- cattle on and off dates, stocking densities and paddock rotations (table 1) were made at the discretion of the site manager based on factors such as drinking water availability, forage availability and cattle conditions (i.e., body condition score, weight gain).
Biomass (Hart and Ashby, 1998; Hart, 2001) and bare ground were greater in grazed
areas and grazed
areas accumulated less litter (Hazlett, 1992).
Experiment sites, including grazed
site and fenced site, were designed in the floodplain of the middle reach of the Xilin River 500 m away from the west of the Inner Mongolian Grassland Ecosystem Research Station of the Chinese Academy of Sciences with an elevation of 1,177 m (43[degrees]37'40" N, 116[degrees]41'11" E).
Native grasses evolved being grazed
(by elk and bison) and are healthiest if grazed
during their growing season, but were grazed
by wandering herds that grazed
them once or twice in a season and moved on.
But if it's not grazed
off over the next few weeks, the result will be an increasing amount of dead material in the base of the sward resulting in poorer grazing quality when cows do finally get out to graze.
2002 a large and intense wildfire burned across the study area we had sampled for rodents in 2000-2001, including all the grazed
and ungrazed plots.
bottae) in 21 grazed
and 21 ungrazed montane meadow sites in the central Sierra Nevada Mountains of California.
One of the 3 catchments (C3) was grazed
continuously over the study period with a constant stocking rate of 1.6 DSE (dry sheep equivalent)/ha.
Intensely and moderately grazed
areas were compared to each other and to a previous investigation involving an ungrazed pasture dominated by introduced Japanese brome (Bromus japonicus).
"The moor has got to be grazed
to protect what we have.
