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

пастбищная нагрузка

Definition from Multitran:
численность выпасных животных на единицу площади пастбища

Example sentence(s):
  • Пастбищная нагрузка выражается в количестве скота, приходящегося на единицу площади пастбища. Допустимая пастбищная нагрузка (ДПН) - это количество скота, которое может обеспечить кормом единица площади пастбища. ДПН иначе называют пастбищной емкостью. - Популярный экологиче  
  • Для уменьшения негативного влияния выпаса проводится экологическое нормирование: определяется пастбищная ёмкость и приводится в соответствие с этим нормативом пастбищная нагрузка. - Экология. Большой сло
