Oversowing and top-dressing of a small area within a defined but unfenced part of a high country summer range caused sheep to concentrate on that treated area. Sheep density and grazing pressure were respectively 4 and 7 times greater than on the untreated area. As fewer sheep grazed the untreated area dry matter utilisation overall decreased in the following 2 years.
