Off topic - but this concept of dense grazing with long resting is very interesting to me.
Would the concept hold true for other animals - like sheep, goats, etc.?

"Old brush will oxidize and turn grey, it must be trampled down so that decomposer organisms can go to work and make the nutrients available to new growth."
