dc.description.abstractIn southern Saskatchewan fall grazing resources become acutely short because little growth of grass occurs after early July. Russian wildrye (Elymus junceus) cures better than most other grasses and is therefore best for late fall pasture. Over a 9-year period cattle were grazed on stands of Russian wildrye that had been seeded in rows spaced 20, 40, or 60 cm apart. Two stocking rates were used. The animals were weighed periodically and were removed when losses in weight occurred. Up to 5 weeks of grazing were obtained where rows were 60 cm apart and when stocked at one animal on each .43 ha, compared to as low as 3 weeks where rows were only 20 cm apart and stocked at one animal on each .32 ha. Values for crude protein, digestibility, crude fibre and ether extract are given.
