Cattle, sheep, and horses graze on native and seeded rangelands and several kinds of perennial pasture, as well as temporary and crop aftermath pasture. The Second Edition of Grazing Management integrates the concepts, principles, and management techniques that apply to all grazing lands and to all grazing animals. This comprehensive volume provides an authoritative review of a wide range of relevant topics: animal nutrition and nutritional balance when animals feed on different sorts of grazing lands; seasonal variation and limits placed on ecosystems by grazing; effects of grazing on grazing lands; various grazing behaviors; selecting plants and managing grazing lands; and many other important topics bearing upon the methods, practices, and procedures for properly managing grazing lands and animals. This book will be an important reference tool for animal scientists, land managers, range managers, and policy makers responsible for managing grazing animals.About the Author:
