Description
 
Free electronic download only. Stocking rate determines animal performance, financial return, and the long-term condition of the range. This publication discusses the factors that affect stocking rate, the relationship of stocking rate to carrying capacity, the amount of forage that should be left ungrazed in order to preserve the resource, and how ranchers can determine actual forage production. Knowing forage production is the key to selecting the proper stocking rate. (12 pp., 2 graphs, 3 charts, 1 table, 2 photos) By: Larry D. White, Allan McGinty
