Abstract
Native pastures are often subjected to abuse from over-grazing or to systems of grazing that may or may not beneficially affect the recovery process or production capacity of various pasture grasses. Grazing by animals differs from cutting mainly in that it usually applies a lesser degree of defoliation and the animals also provide beneficial effects. However, grazing is selective and the degree of defoliation of more palatable species may be similar to clipping.
