Abstract

Whereas sheep movements in the study area are largely determined by the decisions of shepherds, cattle movement is determined by climatic factors, herbage availability and anatomical contrasts. Access to short tender grass enables sheep to obtain a higher protein diet than cattle. These two herd animals also have diffrent daily activity patterns. - (DWG)
