Abstract
Since European settlement, grasslands across North America have gradually been replaced by agriculture, resulting in less than four percent of historical grasslands remaining (Samson and Knopf 1994, Stephens et al. 2008). The remaining grasslands, in both private and public ownership, are heavily used for haying and grazing (Fischer et al. 2008). In addition, emergency haying programs require public agencies to allow mowing and subsequent haying of publicly owned grasslands by local producers during times of drought (USDA Farm Service Agency 2018).
