The effect of spring grazing management on yield, animal liveweight gain and root reserves of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.).
(Lincoln University, 2011)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) is a common pasture legume grown in New Zealand. Rotational grazing is recommended for ensuring stand production and persistence. However, during lambing set stocking ewes and lambs is the ...
Dry matter production of Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) under rotational grazing at Ashley Dene
(Lincoln University, 2012)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) is a key legume for dryland farming systems in New Zealand. This experiment compared dry matter production of seven lucerne cultivars across six paddocks in a rotationally grazed system. ...
Relationships between sheep liveweight production and dry matter yield for lucerne-based pastures in spring
(New Zealand Grassland Association (NZGA), 2019)
A five-year dryland grazing experiment explored the relationship between sheep liveweight (LWt) production and dry matter (DM) yield of lucerne-based pastures in spring. In 2011, a randomised complete block experiment with ...
Optimal grazing management to achieve high yields and utilisation of dryland lucerne
(NZ Grassland Association, 2016)
The pre- and post-grazing dry matter yields from six individual paddocks in a grazed lucerne rotation were compared at Ashley Dene, Lincoln University, over 5 years. The mean annual yield was ~12 000 kg DM/ha and unaffected ...
Liveweight production of ewes and lambs grazing a dryland lucerne monoculture with or without barley grain supplementation
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2016)
In 2013/2014 (Year 1) and 2014/2015 (Year 2) at Ashley Dene, Canterbury, New Zealand, sheep grazing dryland lucerne monocultures were supplemented with barley grain. In neither year did barley grain supplementation improve ...
