Current recommended strategies to cope with climate variability are not widely adopted, due partly to the perception that sustainable strategies are uneconomic. In this paper we provide preliminary data from a long -term study suggesting that sustainable strategies, such as light stocking, deliver significant benefits to both resource condition and the economic performance of grazing enterprises.
