Yields of Forage from Woodland Pastures on Sloping Land in Southern Wisconsin
Abstract:The authors point out that woods pastures produce only one-fifth as much forage per acre as open pastures and less than 10 percent as much as renovated pastures. On the basis of their results they conclude that continued grazing of wooded areas on gray-brown podsolic soils in the northern part of the Mississippi Valley cannot be recommended either from the standpoint of economical forage production or effective and efficient land use.
