  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. A comparison of highveld fodders and fodder flows for growing out long yearling steers

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    A fodder flow/animal experiment 40,8 ha in extent (7,5 ha irrigated), with 19 paddocks, was carried out over a two and a half year period.
  3. Pasture‐use patterns on dairy and beef farms in the natal midlands

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Pasture sites for each of the species grown are classified for both dryland and irrigated pastures in the Natal Midlands. Only six species viz. kikuyu, Italian ryegrass, Eragrostis curvula, Festuca arundinacea (tall fescue), Dactylis glomerata (cocksfoot) and Trifolium repens (white...
  4. The development of veld assessment in the northern Transvaal savanna I. Red Turfveld

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Grazing‐induced gradients in pasture species composition were characterized for the red turfveld of the Northern Transvaal savanna. A proposed classification of pasture species response to grazing was developed and the influence of state variables and driving forces other than grazing...
  5. A mathematical model used to describe animal performance on kikuyu and coastcross II pastures

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Data collected from a controlled grazing trial, in which the quality and quantity of kikuyu (Pennisetum clandestinum) and Coastcross II (Cynodon hybrid) pastures fertilized at 2 nitrogen levels (150 and 300 kg N/ha/a) and stocked at 3 stocking rates (8,05,10,74...
  6. the utilization by sheep of winter and spring Smuts finger and Kikuyu pastures

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    An experiment was conducted on Smuts finger (Digitaria eriantha ssp. eriantha) and Kikuyu (Pennisetum clandestinum) pastures during a winter and spring period to study the effect of postruminal energy and/or protein supplementation on the selection pattern and performance of sheep...
  7. Voluntary intake of several planted pastures by sheep and an assessment of NDF and IVDOM as possible predictors of intake

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The aim was to study the quality and quantity of pasture selected by sheep on various planted pastures. A further aim was to assess NDF and IVDOM as easy measurable parameters for use in equations to predict intake. Pasture samples...
  8. Utilization of <em>Lolium multiflorum</em> by sheep 1. Influence of dry matter content and correlated factors on voluntary intake

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The intake by young sheep of Lolium multiflorum cv. Midmar (ryegrass) with dry matter (DM) contents of between 10.2% and 20.5% was studied. Intake was measured on pasture, while at the same time herbage was cut and fed either fresh...
  9. A preliminary survey of viruses in pasture grasses in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Little work has been done in South Africa on the incidence of viruses in pasture grasses. The aim of this work was to carry out a survey of virus infections of some of the economically‐important pasture grasses in South Africa...
  10. Influence of temperature and daylength on the phenological development of annual <em>Medicago</em> species with particular reference to <em>M. truncatula</em>, cv. Jemalong

    Influence of temperature and daylength on the phenological development of annual <em>Medicago</em> species with particular reference to <em>M. truncatula</em>, cv. Jemalong

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    In a glasshouse and two growth-room trials, carried out in conjunction with 12 serial plantings in pots in the open, it was found that the phenological development of Medicago truncatula, M. tornata, M. aculeata, M. polymorpha, M. scutellata and M...
