Forage utilisation is the single most critical component of any fodder flow management and production system as it controls the most significant variables such as forage yield and quality, botanical composition and persistence, as well as animal performance. The description and quantification of plant animal interaction for sustainable animal production is therefore a requirement in developing grazing and integrated land use systems of benefit to commercial, communal and smallholder farmers.
