Abstract

The present research is the second phase (2 yr) of a multiyear cow-calf project examining the effect of stocking method, i.e., continuous and rotational, and fixed stocking rate on beef-cattle production. Two sets of 4 adjacent pastures, each containing a mixed warm-season, perennial grass sod...

Grazing distribution can be improved by using adapted cattle breeds that travel to distant areas of extensive pastures. A 2-yr study was conducted to evaluate grazing distribution and diet quality of Angus, Brangus, and Brahman cows (seven cows per breed group) in the Chihuahuan Desert during three ...

Abstract

Cow-calf productivity on 2 lightly (25%-30% use) and 2 conservatively grazed pastures (35%-40% use) were evaluated over a 5-year-period (1997 to 2001) in the Chihuahuan Desert of south-central New Mexico. Spring calving Brangus cows were randomly assigned to study pastures in January of each year....
