  1. A comparison of continuous and rotational grazing on veld at two stocking rates

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Two rotational grazing procedures, a four‐paddock system with a 10‐day period of stay and an eight‐paddock system with a 5‐day period of stay, were compared with continuous grazing on veld. The trial was conducted 40 km south of Bulawayo in...
  2. Impacts of non-selective grazing on cover, composition, and productivity of Nama-karoo grassy shrubland

    Impacts of non-selective grazing on cover, composition, and productivity of Nama-karoo grassy shrubland

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The non-selective rotational grazing system has undergone a long and controversial development. The merits of this grazing system, where relatively large numbers of livestock are herded into numerous small paddocks for short timespans with long rests between grazings, have not...
  3. Effect of three grazing intensities on selected soil properties in semi‐arid west Texas

    Effect of three grazing intensities on selected soil properties in semi‐arid west Texas

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Soils in the study, carried out in the Texas Trans‐Pecos region, were fine‐loamy, mixed, thermic Aridic Calciustolls; fine‐loamy, mixed, thermic Aridic Ustochrepts; and fine, mixed, thermic Typic Chromusterts. Our primary objective was to determine the effect of three grazing intensities...
  4. Does high-density stocking affect perennial forbs in mesic grassland?

    Does high-density stocking affect perennial forbs in mesic grassland?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Livestock production is an appropriate land use for mainstreaming biodiversity conservation, but little is known about the impact of grazing strategies on forbs that contribute most species, in grasslands. This study compared the effects of high-density, short-duration stocking (HDG) with...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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...
