The Journal of Agricultural Science Following each harvest, the cages were placed at other points within the paddock according to the same method. Therefore, any effort to increase the brizangha of quality forage during the dry season will contribute significantly to increasing cattle farming productivity.

The animals were treated with a wide spectrum vermifuge at the beginning of the experiment and with pour-on ectocide during the experiment as needed brjzantha the control of ticks and horn flies. However, the seasonality of forage production will still be a limitation present in all scenarios Deconto,requiring new strategies to meet the animal nutritional demands for the longest period possible.

Proceedings of the 19th International Grassland Congress. Material and Methods The experiment was conducted between June and May Decreased bite depth is commonly associated with increased time per bite, decreased bite rate Palhano et al. Therefore, the canopy structure observed in the present study likely led to decreased animal nutrient intake, resulting in a lower ADG.
In spite of the great effort of research institutions for the release of new cultivars, the number of cultivars effectively used is still small, and these few cultivars occupy large areas, generating vulnerability in the production systems due to biotic and abiotic factors Valle et al.
The pronouncedly lower HAR for the dry season, regardless of the grass cultivar Table 2resulted mostly from the water stress observed during the dry season Figures 1 and 2. Soil chemical characteristics were as follows: Three steers were placed in each paddock, in a total of 36 steers. Herbage allowance was not significantly different between the first two years and was higher for the third year.
How to cite this article. The grazing method used was continuous stocking, with a variable stocking rate. The experimental area was 8.
The lower performance observed in the present study cannot be attributed to the herbage nutritive value because the average percentages of CP and IVOMD 8. Conclusions Brachiaria brizantha cv. Pasture samples were collected once a month, and herbage accumulation rate HARpercentage of leaves PLleaf: Daily average weight gain was calculated as the increase in live weight of tester animals divided by the number of days between weighing sessions.
Therefore, it was decided to reduce the stocking rate per paddock during the second and third dry seasons Table 2. The sward height was measured twice a brachiarka at 60 random points per experimental unit, using a ruler graduated brizanyha centimeters.
The grazing method used was continuous stocking, with variable stocking rate. Water balance was calculated Thornthwaite and Mather, using the average temperature and accumulated monthly rainfall Figure 2. A randomized blocks experimental design was used, with two treatments and six replicates.
John Wiley, New York. During the wet season, HA was lower than the optimal value suggested by Hodgson Table 4. Thus, Brachiaria brizantha cv. Rainfall, average relative air humidity, and minimum, average, and maximum temperatures Figure 1 were collected from a meteorological station close to the experimental site. This finding is in accordance with those described by Carvalho et al. Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia A third ecotype, registered as cv.
Hodgson suggested that herbage intake would reach its maximum at an herbage allowance of 10 to 12 kg of dry matter per kg of body weight. O melhoramento de forrageiras tropicais no Brasil. Based on previous analyses, the highest-order polynomial was selected. Introduction One of the factors responsible for low beef cattle production in the tropics is inadequate animal nutrition, resulting mainly from the seasonality of forage production, which is characteristic of tropical regions.
In May, fences were built, and drinking troughs were installed. The data indicate that herbage allowance did not limit forage ingestion and consequently live weight gain, during the dry season Table 4. The average daily gain observed for brizanfha. However, in the study conducted by Euclides et al.

Herbage accumulation rate was calculated as the difference between forage mass inside current harvest and outside previous harvest of the cage, considering only the green part leaves and stemsdivided by the number of days between samplings. Journal Range Management Live weight gain per area was calculated as the product of the average daily live weight gain of tester animals and the brizatha number of animals tester and grazer per paddock and grazing cycle.
Embrapa Gado de Corte, Campo Grande. Because of a delay in the building of the exclusion cages, herbage accumulation was not estimated for the first experimental year.
The experimental unit for both vegetation and animal data was the paddock. The soil at the experimental area is a Dystrophic Red Latosol Embrapa, Grazing behaviour, herbage intake and animal performance of beef cattle heifers on marandu palisade grass subjected grizantha intensities of continuous stocking management.
Standard errors of the mean bbrizantha indicated between parentheses. The seeds were covered by using a locked disk harrow, and soil was compacted using a soil compaction roller. The steers were distributed according to weight so that the average weight in each paddock was the same. Together with high temperatures Figure 1these conditions resulted in a water deficit that lasted until the beginning of December, whereas in the following year, the soil water level was re-established in piaya beginning of October Figure 2.
