• Microdigestion of Grazed Annual Forage, Clipped Herbage, and Standard Samples by Cattle and Sheep

      Van Dyne, G. M.; Weir, W. C. (Society for Range Management, 1964-11-01)
      Microdigestion estimates were correlated with macrodigestion estimates obtained by lignin ratio technique under grazing or total collection procedures under dry-lot feeding. Over all techniques the correlation was about 0.72. Forages grazed by either cattle or sheep in midsummer were more disgestible than those grazed in early or late summer.
    • Range Management in the General Economy of Greece

      Biswell, H. H. (Society for Range Management, 1964-11-01)
      This article discusses the status of range management in Greece and its relationship to other aspects of the general economy. Since the general economy is improving rapidly, increased attention is being given to range management and forestry, and especially to teaching, research and demonstration. The Greek government is doing a great deal toward improving livestock and grazing practices.
    • Rotation Burning: A Forage Management System for Longleaf Pine-Bluestem Ranges

      Duvall, V. L.; Whitaker, L. B. (Society for Range Management, 1964-11-01)
      In a Louisiana test, heavy utilization during growing seasons following fires applied at 3-year intervals improved forage palatability and nutritive content; the ensuing 2 years of lighter use restored plant vigor. Burning also top-killed brush and aided herbage growth by removing pine litter. Cows with calves gained weight throughout the growing season on rotation-burned range.
