AbstractThe evolution of multi-camp schemes from nonselective grazing to short duration grazing management on Hillside Ranch in the False Karoo in the Southern Orange Free State, Republic of South Africa, is described. The grazing system resulted in the return and increase of rare and unknown grasses. The conclusion is reached that grazing management with multi-camp schemes is useful in counteracting varying climatic conditions and producing a grass cover under adverse growing conditions. In addition it is shown that livestock can produce well under such systems.
