• Technical Notes: The relationship of stocking intensity and stocking pressure to other stocking variables

      Scarnecchia, D. L. (Society for Range Management, 1985-11-01)
      Stocking intensity and stocking pressure have been defined and used as technical stocking variables describing animals on pasture. Relationships between these variables and stocking variables such as stocking density and stocking rate are discussed. One conclusion is that stocking intensity and stocking pressure are not informationally unique variables, but are equivalent to stocking variables defined in other work. Retention of the terms stocking intensity and stocking pressure is recommended for nontechnical use in describing livestock grazing.
