This study examined how pasture size and composition can affect cattle distribution in and around streams, and influence the risk of pollutants stemming from cattle congregating in a small area.
Do this physical characteristics of a pasture influence the effectiveness of practices intended to reduce the risk of non-point source pollution of pasture streams caused by congregation of cattle in and near streams?
The major factors affecting congregation of cattle in and near pasture streams were the size and shape of the pasture.
