Livestock grazing behaviour is poorly understood in the arid rangelands of Ethiopia, resulting in inadequate rangeland management and grazing systems, which are no improvement on the traditional practices by pastoralists. This study aimed at quantifying the influence of rangeland degradation on...
The invasive coloniser Ipomoea hildebrandtii aggravates the problem of inadequate grass forage in Kajiado district, Kenya. To test its impact on grass biomass, nitrogen (N) mineralisation and seedling establishment, grazing and coloniser density were controlled using experimental exclosures and...
Transformation of indigenous vegetation for production purposes impacts negatively on biodiversity but does this necessarily equate with a decrease in phytomass accumulation, which may influence carbon sequestration? Phytomass accumulation was studied for common land covers of beef ranching or...
Zero grazing is the cornerstone of dairying in intensively cultivated smallholdings in Kenya. The cut and carry method of forage harvesting increasingly is leading to soil mining, especially of phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N). This problem is more serious in the Central highlands where the...
A study to investigate oversowing of grass species as a restoration strategy in severely degraded rangeland was carried out in the Allaidege rangeland in north-eastern Ethiopia. Locally collected seeds of three grass species (Enteropogon rupestris, Ischaemum afrum and Tragus berteronianus) and...
Diet selection by herbivores is a major determinant of animal and plant production and has a direct bearing on the sustainability of stock farming generally. Fistulated goats were confined in designated plots on the University of Fort Hare research farm and fistula samples were collected by the...
