  1. Longer rest periods for intensive rotational grazing limit diet quality of sheep without enhancing environmental benefits

    Longer rest periods for intensive rotational grazing limit diet quality of sheep without enhancing environmental benefits

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Intensive rotational grazing systems (also called cell grazing, holistic grazing or time-controlled grazing) are often implemented to improve production and environmental outcomes. Over recent years there has been considerable interpretation and adaption of the holistic principles that guide the management...
  2. Optimal grazing management strategies: evaluating key concepts

    Optimal grazing management strategies: evaluating key concepts

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Rangeland management strategies must be based on robust ecological and economic concepts if they are to be effective and profitable. Thus, the aim of this paper was to examine concepts related to grazing and resting of grassland and associated effects...
  3. A global assessment of Holistic Planned Grazing™ compared with season-long, continuous grazing: meta-analysis findings

    A global assessment of Holistic Planned Grazing™ compared with season-long, continuous grazing: meta-analysis findings

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    It has been claimed that Holistic Planned Grazing™ (HPG), a type of rotational grazing, can increase productivity in rangelands and reverse climate change while doubling the stocking rate, mainly through the impact of densely bunched animals on primary production. Previous...
  4. Distribution, Size and Ownership of Forests in the Southern Cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Indigenous forest of the southern Cape as delimited on 1:50 000 maps was analysed for distribution, size and ownership in six landscape zones: mountains, foothill, coastal platform, river valley, coastal scarp and dunes. I tested the hypothesis that forest distribution...
  5. Multiple Resource Utilisation Developments in Mondi Forests

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Defined as the use of available resources other than the planted trees on Mondi's landholdings, the development of various MRU projects is described from 1975 onwards. Projects are differentiated into those that are directly dependant on the presence of planted...
  6. Influence of stocking rate and grazing systems on available grazing in the northern cape<sup>1</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The influence of rotational and continuous grazing systems, each applied with four stocking rates, on the above‐ground phytomass of veld was determined over four years.
  7. Die ekonomiese implikasies van bosverdigting en bosbeheer soos van toepassing op ‘n speenkalfproduksiestelsel in die doringbosveld van die Molopo‐gebied

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Daar bestaan ‘n dringende behoefte aan ekonomies geregverdigde kostes wat as riglyne kan dien vir bosbeheer in die Molopo‐gebied. In hierdie referaat word so ‘n bedrag beraam.
  8. Grazing of <em>raphanus sativus</em>. L (Japanese Radish)<sup>1</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The performance of young woolled sheep was markedly better when grazing Japanese radish early in winter, when more leaf was available .Continuous grazing resulted in better performance than rotational or zero grazing.
  9. Optimising stocking rate under commercial and subsistence pastoralism <em>optimisering van veelading by kommersiele en bestaansveeboerdery</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Hopes for a single criterion of overstocking are forlorn. Livestock may be kept for any of many purposes, and the stocking rate optimal for one is not necessarily so for another. Conflicts might be resolved by (1) recognising the likely...
  10. The production, digestibility and chemical composition of five ecotypes of <em>Anthephora pubescens</em> Nees on three soil types

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Production, digestibility of OM and chemical composition of five promising Anthephora pubescens Nees ecotypes (VH4, VH7, VH9, VH17 and VH20) at two fertiliser levels were compared on a soil of the Mangano, Annandale and Sunbury series.
