Cattle, sheep and goats, when together on the same range are referred to as grazing in common, or as being managed under mixed grazing (Allen, 1991). Most mixed grazing schemes are designed to take advantage of dietary differences among livestock species. Grazing strategies involving more than one animal species should promote more uniform forage utilization and greater livestock production than is possible under single species grazing (Anderson et al., 1985).
