English term or phrase: grazing pressure
Definition from IFAD:
The relationship between the number of animal units or forage intake units and the weight of forage dry matter per unit area at any point in time; an animal-to forage relationship. May be expressed as animal units or forage intake units to forage mass (animal units/forage mass at a specific time).

Example sentence(s):
  • An optimum grazing pressure is one in which available forage matches animal needs; this is analogous to the quantity of forage offered daily to animals in confinement when rations are balanced. The Pennsylvania State University
  • The different grazing pressures were obtained through different stocking rates, adjusted every 21 d according to forage mass, predicted forage production rate, and an estimated forage allowance of 10, 15 and 20 kg dry matter (DM) heifer-1 d-1 for high, medium, and low pressures, respectively. American Society of Agronomy
  • Stocking rate and annual average grazing pressure (with or without account for feral animals) did not appear to be, in themselves, good indicators of sustainability. Rather, the sustainability of different areas/systems and the impacts on sustainability of changes in management, e.g. stocking rates, may be assessed better through calculating year-to-year variability of the feed base, and periods of critical grazing pressure. cababstractsplus.org

Example sentence(s):
  • De gewenste begrazingsdruk kan tot stand komen door runderen die in kuddes, vanuit enkele concentratiepunten, uitzwerven over een relatief groot gebied. - Beheersplan Waddenzee  
  • In bos en bos met open plekken is de begrazingsdruk maximaal één GVE1 per 3 ha. Op grasland en heide is de begrazingsdruk in weinig bodemvruchtbare terreinen maximaal één GVE per 2 ha. In bodemvruchtbare terreinen kan dit oplopen tot 1,5 GVE per ha. - Ministerie van L&V  
  • Toetsen van hypothese dat inname van zware metalen door vee voornamelijk bepaald wordt door grondiname, en dat grondinname sterk omgekeerd evenredig gerelateerd is aan de beschikbare hoeveelheid gras per dier (begrazingsdruk). - Project: Actief Bodembeheer
