|Data collection period||01 May 2019 to end of 31 May 2021|
|Data collection method|
Pasture herbage mass estimated using plate meter readings, two replicate samples of 40 observations on each occasion, recording pre-grazing and post-grazing herbage for each grazed paddock on each day.
|Data preparation and processing activities|
Intakes derived as differences between pre- and post-grazing measurements, expressed both per unit area and per animal, and summed across day and night grazing periods and each 24-hour period. Grazing efficiencies calculated as intake as a proportion of available herbage mass.
