Abstract
A 2.4 hectare grazing experiment is described in which live weight gains were measured from Small East African Zebu steers grazing ley and natural pasture over sown with Style respectively. The results showed that although higher animal production (462 kgl hal annum) was obtained from planted pasture than from improved natural pasture (357 l\jg I hal annum), the improved natural pasture offered higher profit margin. The practical implication of the results to range improvement and beef production is discussed.
