AbstractSteepness of slope of a grazing area considerably influences distribution of cattle. On a 10% slope where access is only from the bottom, 75% of cattle use is likely to be within 810 yards of the foot of the slope. On a 60% slope, 75% of use is likely to be within only 35 yards of the foot of the slope. Distribution is also influenced by distance from water.
