Abstract: SUMMARY This studyaimed to assess the influence of three pre-grazing heights of Massai grass on the ingestive behavior of sheep under rotational stocking. Eighteen Dorper x nondescript crossbred sheep were used under rotational stocking on Massai grass at pre-grazing heights. The animal stocking was estimated to ensure a reduction of approximately 50% of the initial height. Behavior assessments were performed from 6 to 18 h at the entrance and exit of animals from paddocks. The longest activity was grazing, fo… Show more

“…The bite rate was negatively correlated with the bite mass, and the more forage taken, the more time was required to chew the bite. Similarly, an animal that consumes a higher amount of forage requires more time for rumination (Pedroso et al, 2004;Cardoso et al, 2019). Bite mass (g bite -1 ) Bite rate (bite hour -1 ) Source: Adapted from Pedroso et al (2004).…”
