AbstractAn investigation of herbage yield, crude protein, and in vitro dry matter disappearance (IVDMD) levels of ungrazed threadleaf sedge (Carex filifolia Nutt.) was conducted over a 2-year period in western Nebraska. Threadleaf sedge contributed approximately 80% of the total herbage production on the study site. Crude protein varied from over 18% in late April to 5% or less in February. Levels of IVDMD varied from 69% in May to 51% in March. Levels of these quality factors were higher than those for most grasses throughout the year.
