Resumen: The liveweight (LW) response of Gallega and Lacha ewes with their single suckling lambs when grazing with a mob of goats on perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.)/white clover (Trifolium repens L.) pastures and its consequence on sward composition were analysed. From early March (turnout) to mid-June (lamb weaning), swards were grazed either simultaneously mixed in a 1:1 goat to sheep ratio or separately in a goat-first and sheep-last sequential grazing at 6 or 8 cm sward heights or in a 4-paddock rotation where goats grazed swards from 9 to 7 cm followed by sheep from 7 to 4 cm. Changes in botanical composition and in sheep liveweight performance were more significantly affected by the management and species grazing than by the sward height treatment. Swards where goats were last in had higher herbage masses, higher live clover and lower dead and stem proportions than swards where sheep and goats were mixed or sheep were last in. As a consequence of a sward clover enhancement over all treatments, ewe and lamb performances were benefited especially in the Lacha genotype, with the rotational and sequential managements having, respectively, an output of 298 and 252 kg LW/ha greater than the mixed management. These results suggest that goats could be used as a pasture management tool when integrated with sheep under these different grazing systems to enhance ovine performance during lactation.
