Abstract

In a survey in the West of Scotland, utilized‐starch‐equivalent (U. S.E.) outputs from the grassland of 67 farms, mainly dairy farms, and 9 hill‐grazing units associated with them, were assessed by the farm‐recording method. The limitations and possibilities of the method are discussed. The results obtained were above average, but the farms were a selected group. The wide range of U. S.E. outputs from farms of similar type indicates the scope for improvement on farms with low levels of output. The need for more surveys to clarify existing production levels on commercial farms is emphasized.
