The habitat carrying capacity (CC) for the winter was calculated using the formulae CC = (ps) (fs) / (cs) (ts) (Rasmussen & Ffolliott 1981; Gallina 1990), taking into account the average of the biomass values (ps), and using a use factor of 0.15 (fs) and a total consumption for sheep of 46.42 kg/individual/month (cs); these values were used by Patton (1992) for domestic sheep
. The foraging time for this season (ts) was estimated as four months.
