Aims
  • To measure the productivity and recovery of cereals under simulated grazing regimes.
  • To determine the number of times cereals can be grazed without affecting yield.
Key messages
  • Grazing once early in the season did not affect grain yield.
  • Grain yields were reduced when varieties were grazed late in the season.
  • Oats and barley showed better early vigour than the wheat varieties.
