    Abstract

    The high stocking rates of the 1880s (1 dry sheep equivalent (dse) to 3.1 ha) were followed by a decline to 1 dse:5.7 ha in the 1940s and then increased to 1 dse:4.9 ha in the 1980s. Estimates of carrying capacity are generally higher than the stock actually recorded. Closer settlement or breaking up large properties into smaller units led to social problems and environmental degradation. -from Author
