    Description

    Nineleaf biscuitroot begins growth very early in the spring, often just following snow melt, providing crucial early forage for many wildlife and domestic animals. It is considered one of the most valuable forage species of the genus due to its large stature and high production levels. It is rated as having fair to very good forage for sheep and poor to good forage for cattle (USDA-FS, 1937). Ogle and Brazee (2009) rate it as desirable spring and summer forage for cattle, sheep, horses, elk, deer and antelope.
