  1. 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.
  2. Evaluation of veld potential in east griqualand using beef cattle under two grazing management systems

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Beef production from veld, in the short term, was found to be greater under a continuous grazing system than under a rotational grazing system. Average daily gains decreased from a maximum in late‐spring and the highest three‐year mean value was...
  3. The characterization of irrigated Midmar Italian ryegrass in the South Eastern Transvaal Highveld using slaughter lambs

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Four levels of available dry matter (DM) were maintained on a continuously grazed irrigated Midmar Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum Lam.) pasture by means of a “put‐and‐take” grazing procedure. The pasture was stocked with three successive sets of weaned lambs in...
  4. Influence of grazing management on the production of an irrigated grass/legume pasture in the Rûens area of the Southern cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The production of an irrigated grass/legume pasture was determined using Merino ewes on rotational and continuous grazing systems. The clover content of the pasture declined, while the grass content increased under both systems. The lucerne content of the rotationally‐grazed pastures...
  5. Groei en produksie van ‘n aanal aangeplante weidings onder beweiding

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Die groei en produksie onder beweiding van ‘n aantal aangeplante weidings is met behulp van die verskilmetode bepaal. Uit die data verkry in die proef is dit duidelik dat indien daar besproeiingswater beskikbaar is, groen materiaal dwarsdeur die jaar voorsien...
  6. “n Voorlopige evaluasie van eenjarige, wintergroen weidings met speenlammers, in die Oos‐Kaapse suurveld

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    A preliminary evaluation of annual, wintergreen pastures using weaned lambs in the eastern Cape sourveld. Animal production and feed availability on oats, vetch and oats/vetch pastures were evaluated under continuous grazing, at three stocking rates, using weaned lambs. The oats...
  7. Are multi‐paddock grazing systems economically justifiable?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The financial implications of few‐ and multi‐paddock systems were modelled by a discounted cash flow analysis with the (discounted) present value as the dependent variable, and number of paddocks, farm run‐down time, time horizon and discount rate as the independent...
  8. An evaluation of the empirical basis for grazing management recommendations for rangeland in southern Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Analysis of over 50 grazing experiments conducted in southern Africa does not support certain management recommendations. Furthermore, the conclusions of some experiments are questionable owing to poor experimental design or confirmation bias. Based on available evidence, it was concluded that...
  9. Towards optimum grazing management for sheep production on crownvetch (<em>Coronilla varia</em> L.)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The performance of wether lambs on crownvetch (Coronilla varia L.) pasture was determined for three seasons under five grazing procedures. These included continuous grazing and rotational grazing with a 7‐day period‐of stay and periods‐of‐absence of 7, 21, 35 or 49...
  10. Effect of grazing frequency and intensity on <em>Lolium perenne</em> L. pastures under subtropical conditions: Herbage production

    Effect of grazing frequency and intensity on <em>Lolium perenne</em> L. pastures under subtropical conditions: Herbage production

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The dry matter (DM) production of Lolium perenne (perennial ryegrass) pastures was evaluated under subtropical conditions for two years, under five combinations of grazing frequency and intensity, each applied in a rotational grazing system. Simulated continuous grazing (CG) was also...
