Hill farming
2013-09-20 13:07:03

Hill farming involves using is a particular piece of land for grazing sheep and cattle. This form of farming is used particularly by the farmers of the UK in the higher elevations. Farmers generally do not have access to winter fodder for their cattle, therefore, sheep farms are typical for such areas. Due to this restricted access, farmers move the herds to lower elevations for feeding. These specific farms are found in the North and South-Western areas of England, as well as the...

Overgrazing
2013-04-01 12:31:24

Overgrazing occurs when plants are unprotected to intensive grazing for extended periods of time, or without enough recovery periods. It can be a result of either livestock in poorly managed agricultural applications, or by overpopulations of native or non-native wild animals. Overgrazing reduces the usefulness, biodiversity, and productivity of the land and is one cause of desertification and erosion. It’s also considered to be a cause of the spread of invasive species of non-native...
