AbstractThe grazed plant method of estimating utilization is some times inadequate because a large percentage of the plants may be grazed lightly. Utilization by weight may be no more than 40% when 100% of the plants are grazed. An adaptation of the grazed plant method aimed at overcoming this weakness has yielded very gratifying results for Thurber fescue in the Central Rocky Mountain area.
