Abstract

On the Ground

  • By managing for more even animal distribution, ranch managers can increase the amount of forage accessible to livestock and raise their effective grazing capacity.

  • Smaller paddocks and higher stocking density improve the distribution of grazing in each paddock.

  • A landscape of many, smaller paddocks will spread grazing pressure more evenly than one of fewer, larger paddocks.
