Dataset from the literature on the ingestive behaviour of grazing ruminants

Abstract

The dataset described in this paper was constructed from 90 publications available from bibliographic databases. It presents the values of various quantitative components of ingestive behaviour of grazing ruminants (bite weight, biting rate, intake rate, grazing time, etc.). These values were coded according to the experimental factors tested and described in the publications, of a temporal nature (season, year, grazing cycle) or linked to the sward management strategies (overall density bulk or of the stems, the stage regrowth or the fertilization) or other pasture management strategies (herbage allowance, pasture access time, stocking rate). Other essential factors were also coded, specifying the characteristics of the grass grazed (height of the grass, apparent density, forage species), the characteristics of the animals used (species, stage, age and body weight) or the measurement methods of behavioural components. This coding process aims to facilitate the identification of subsets of data of interest, and have been analysed for example to highlight the main components determining bite weight or the components linking bite weight to intake rate and daily intake (see reference).
