Body

Deferred-rotation grazing of Kansas Flint Hills' range grazed by steers May 1 to October 1 was compared to season-long stocking from 1950 through 1966. Deferred-rotation pastures had higher forage production and range condition than season-long stocked pastures. Steer gains were higher on season-long than deferred-rotation pastures. Increased stocking rates were more feasible on deferred-rotation pastures than on season-long pastures. This material was digitized as part of a cooperative project between the Society for Range Management and the University of Arizona Libraries.
