Legume-grass pastures based on Trifolium semipilosum (Kenya white clover) cv Safari and Leucaena leucocephala (leucaena) cv. Peru persisted under grazing in a subtropical environment of south-east Queensland over an 11 year period of study. Stocking rates were increased from 1.2 to 3.0 yearling steers ha-1 on the Safari pasture and from 1.9 to 2.5 yearlings ha-1 on the leucaena pasture.
