Description:

Spatio-temporal rainfall variation and stock management in arid Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

The high inherent variability in rainfall and forage availability in arid regions makes it very difficult for a rancher to establish a herd size that is suited to the environment and also complicates management decision-making regarding the distribution of animals within and between areas of a single ranch. We recorded the temporal and spatial variability in rainfall and grass production on a local scale on 3 ranches in arid Namibia over 3 years, to determine their effects on potential stocking density, stock movement decisions and timing of grazing. Keywords: variability, ranching, drought, range management, grass production, arid environments, desert, Africa.
