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.
