Abstract:During the course of a study on the management of sheep using summer range in western Colorado, a method of determining forage utilization by weight was developed and carefully tested. The principles on which this method is based are not new but the technique of application and results obtained merit consideration by both range administrators and research workers. A description of the method, together with pertinent results of its application, is the subject of this article.
