AbstractSeasonal opening and closing of watering places in a 3,200-acre pasture on the Santa Rita Experimental Range in Arizona resulted in lighter use of percnnial grasses near water if utilization for the pasture was moderate to light, and if the closed period included the summer growing season. Rotating use of watering places should work best in large range units with waters far apart.
