DescriptionUnder season-long grazing of Sherman big bluegrass, utilization to a 4-inch stubble height was better than lighter or heavier grazing for sustained forage production and ground cover. Heavy grazing associated with drought resulted in severe deterioration of the grass stands. Beef gains from the recommended rate of grazing averaged 78 lb/acre. This beef gain was higher than for any other seeded or native species tested at the Manitou Experimental Forest, Colorado.
