We ring grass shoots and measure the size of the elaves every six days as a measure of food availability for the geese. Today my assistant is Ramsey Nasr, writer and former national poet of the Netherlands. The layout of the plots is paired. One will be exclosed, so the geese cannot get to it. That will show production. The other is open and from the grazed leaves we can calculate consumption.
