English term or phrase: strip grazing
Definition from
Confining animals to an area of grazing land to be grazed in a relatively short period of time, where the paddock size is varied to allow access to a specific land. Strip grazing may or may not be a form of rotational stocking, depending on whether or not specific paddocks are utilised for recurring periods of grazing and rest.

Example sentence(s):
  • Strip grazing would rarely be suitable for low stocking rates as winter pastures can usually sustain these grazing pressures. However, if pasture growth is hindered by soil fertility or low plant density, strip grazing may be beneficial.
  • Strip grazing can be easily superimposed on control grazing in large paddocks by placing movable electric fences ahead and behind the goats, giving them sufficient forage for two to three days. Strip grazing is very effective and results in high pasture utilization because otherwise goats will not graze soiled forage well. eXtension
  • Strip grazing on a three-day frequency yielded more than 40% more grazing days per acre than allocating a 14-day forage supply and produced the same level of animal gain. This can reduce the amount of mud compared to Feeding hay in the same location all winter.

Definition from InterActive Terminology for Europe:
Kaistasyöttö on lohkosyötön erikoismuoto, jossa uusi laidunalue annetaan päivittäin tai useammin siirrettävää, väliaikaista, yleensä sähköaitaa käyttäen.

Example sentence(s):
  • Kaistasyötössä aidataan päivittäin alue laidunnettavaksi siirrettävillä aidoilla. Kaistasyötössä työmäärä on suuri, johtuen eläinten siirtelystä päivittäin, jolloin myös vesien järjestäminen on mietittävä. Kaistasyöttö onkin taitoa ja huolellisuutta vaativaa eläinten laiduntajalle. Eläinten kannalta kaistasyöttö on tehokasta, joka kasvattaa eläintuotosta hyvin. Laitumen suhteellinen hyväksikäyttö on korkea. - Suomen Virtuaaliammattikorkeakoulu
