Abstract
The mean rates of stocking were similar in the two catchments, being one beast to 11. 5 acres in Catchment A and one beast to 10 acres in Catchment B, giving an overall average of one beast to 11 acres. However, the maximum rate reached one beat to six acres in May, 1959, and fell to one to 75 acres in February, 1960. It can be seen that the lower rate of stocking was maintained for only three months which are the driest months when the grass would have tittle chance of recovering: the cattle returned in force with the onset of the rains.
