Abstract

Rotational grazing systems have potential to reduce soil loss and fossil fuel use, and may increase biodiversity by providing a wildlife habitat. Establishing native, warm-season plant communities based on the region's native tallgrass prairie ecosystem as part of a rotational grazing system would benefit graziers by offering higher drought tolerance and pasture production levels in the midsummer months.
