Résumé
Pastures 2N and 2S of the Jornada Experimental Range were used to investigate behavior (travel and time budgets), nutritional status and body weight change of cattle. Pasture 2N served as a control while pasture 2S was aerially sprayed with 2,4,5-Trichlorophenoxy acetic acid at the rate of 227 g/hectare. This treatment allowed stocking rate to be increased in pasture 2S from 1.8 to 3.4 times more than that in pasture 2N.

Mots Clés  : cattle grazing, behavior, food habits, cattle, nutrition, cattle, productivity
