• Determining Common Use Grazing Capacities by Application of the Key Species Concept

      Smith, A. D. (Society for Range Management, 1965-07-01)
      Correct substitution rates of one grazing animal for another under common use take place at uniform rates, being governed at any point by the utilization standard of some single species. The capacity under common use may be greater than that realized with the less suited animal alone, or greater than either animal alone, depending upon the particular combination of animal numbers and the particular range.
