Extract

Stubble grazing is the main source of nutrients for small ruminants in the Middle East for 3-5 months after cereal harvesting in late May or June. As the flocks are usually mated at this time, poor nutrition may affect the prolificacy of the flocks. However, there have been very few studies of the process of grazing stubble that have defined nutrient intakes and the need for supplementation to sustain particular levels of weight change at mating. An experiment was designed to describe the patterns of removal of different fractions of stubble during grazing at different stocking rates.
