Abstract

During the maturing of pasture from the flowering stage there is a considerable falling off in quality and in its overall value as stock fodder. Much of this loss in carrying capacity can be avoided by mowing the pasture at the hay stage and leaving the cut material in the paddock for grazing over the summer months. This is a very practical possibility in view of our long dry summer. Such a practice is of course in addition to providing adequate stored reserves of meadow hay for normal autumn and early winter feeding.
