520 |aGrazing 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, practises and procedures for properly managing grazing lands and animals. * 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 behaviours * Selecting plants and managing grazing lands.
