• Grazing Systems: Terms and Definitions

      Heady, H. F. (Society for Range Management, 1970-01-01)
      Differences in definition of terms, results obtained from grazing systems, and in viewpoints continue to exist on the usefulness of grazing systems. Reasons for confusion include: 1) Many range management practices are grouped under the term "grazing system." 2) It is used to describe the day to day provisions of livestock feed from a wide variety of sources as well as seasonal patterns of grazing. 3) Designs of grazing systems have been extended to areas where they do not apply. 4) Practice and research have given different results. Several definitions are proposed for clarification.
