Description
Grazing animals need to be managed in order to accommodate desired results in terms of animal, plant, land and economic responses. Grazing Management, 2nd Edition integrates principles and management techniques that apply to all grazing lands and to all grazing animals. This comprehensive volume provides authoritative review on a wide range of relevant topics: animal nutrition and nutritional balance when fed on different sorts of grazing lands; seasonal variation and limits placed on ecosystems by grazing; the effects of grazing on grazing lands; the various sorts of grazing behaviors; selecting plants and managing grazing lands, as well as many other important topics bearing upon the methods, practices and procedures for properly managing grazing lands and animals.

There are many issues that influence the way that grazing animals are managed. Some of these issues include land management practices and goals, ecosystem structure, and animal nutrition, health, growth and reproduction. Grazing Management, 2nd Edition integrates these concepts, principles and management techniques as they apply to all grazing lands and grazing animals. Grazing lands from native and seeded rangelands through several kinds of perennial pasture to temporary and crop aftermath pasture are fully examined in this book.
