AbstractMeasurements were made of cover, yield, and vigor of plants at five locations in fenced exclosures and on adjacent range moderately grazed by sheep in fall through spring. Under the conditions of this study, four years of either deferment or moderate grazing did not cause major changes in vegetation cover, but there were improvements in the yield composition and vigor of climax-dominant perennial grasses.
