Controlled stocking - SS2 Agriculture Lesson Note

Controlled stocking is a rangeland management technique that involves regulating the number of livestock (cattle, sheep, etc.) on a given area of land. The goal is to prevent overgrazing, which can lead to soil erosion and degradation of the rangeland ecosystem. In simple terms, this method means adjusting the number of animals to match the available forage and environmental conditions.


How it works:

By monitoring forage availability and animal needs, ranchers can determine the appropriate stocking rate.

This method prevents overgrazing, allowing plants to recover, grow, and maintain soil stability.

It helps preserve native vegetation, biodiversity, and the overall health of the rangeland.
