Optimal grazing management to achieve high yields and utilisation of dryland lucerne
(NZ Grassland Association, 2016)
The pre- and post-grazing dry matter yields from six individual paddocks in a grazed lucerne rotation were compared at Ashley Dene, Lincoln University, over 5 years. The mean annual yield was ~12 000 kg DM/ha and unaffected ...
Liveweight production of ewes and lambs grazing a dryland lucerne monoculture with or without barley grain supplementation
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2016)
In 2013/2014 (Year 1) and 2014/2015 (Year 2) at Ashley Dene, Canterbury, New Zealand, sheep grazing dryland lucerne monocultures were supplemented with barley grain. In neither year did barley grain supplementation improve ...
Relationships between sheep liveweight production and dry matter yield for lucerne-based pastures in spring
(New Zealand Grassland Association (NZGA), 2019)
A five-year dryland grazing experiment explored the relationship between sheep liveweight (LWt) production and dry matter (DM) yield of lucerne-based pastures in spring. In 2011, a randomised complete block experiment with ...
Liveweight production, dry matter yield and seasonal composition from dryland lucerne and lucerne/grass mixes over five years
(Taylor and Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2019-07-29)
Liveweight production, dry matter yield and botanical composition of three lucerne based pastures (lucerne monoculture, lucerne/brome, lucerne/cocksfoot) were quantified for five years from a grazed, dryland experiment at ...
