    Seeding ranges for the improvement of forage values is now a recognized practice. Depleted ranges and abandoned farmlands in the ponderosa pine zone of Colorado can be successfully seeded (Hull and Johnson, 1955). The kind of grass to plant, when, where, and how, have been determined through research, but comparable information on how to graze seeded ranges is scarce. Proper grazing use of established stands is essential to good management.
