The following chapter addresses specific problems associated with the nutrition of sheep on rangelands, including variable feed quality and water availability, as well as the use of supplementary feeding to correct nutrient deficiencies for sheep grazing in these environments. Variability in feed quality and intake are discussed in terms of spatial (plant, patch and landscape levels) and temporal (short- to medium-term, longer intra-annual, and interseasonal variability) variations in forage quality and supply. The chapter elaborates on sustainable resource management of rangeland systems and feed supplementation under rangeland conditions.
