Abstract
In order to apply a system of rotational grazing and burning to a group of small cattle ranches varying in size from 1,400 to 3,200 acres it was necessary to make firebreaks which would be effective under local conditions whilst remaining cheap enough to be financed by indigenous ranchers. The grazing system applied, namely the one herd four block system, involved resting some blocks whilst others were being used, some of the rested blocks being burned in the mid-year dry season when the grass was at its longest and driest.
