Abstract

Four hundred and ten mixed-breed heifers were intensively early grazed for 81 days on native tall grass pastures where dormant growth had been removed by either winter grazing or April burning. Heifers grazing the burned pastures gained .19 lb/day more (1.99 vs 1.80 lb; P<.05) than those grazing pastures that had the dormant grass removed by heavy grazing during February and March.
