Once these are understood, losses may be reduced by maintaining optimal forage conditions, adjusting grazing pressure and the timing of grazing, strategic supplementation, changing livestock species and herbicidal control.

The term ‘allowance’ takes account of the need to include a safety factor on top of ‘requirements’ to allow for variations in environmental conditions and individual variability in requirements.

Compounds such as superoxide anion (·O2–), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), hydroxyl radical (·OH), alkoxyl radical (RO·) and peroxyl radical (ROO·) attack cellular lipid, protein, DNA and carbohydrate.
