Distance from Water as a Factor in Grazing Capacity of Rangeland
Abstract:An important factor influencing use of range forage is nearness to water supply. The author points out how intensity of grazing use declines with increased distance from water. Applying these results to a specific pasture made possible a correction in ordinary range-carrying capacity estimates to values in accordance with good range use.
