    An exact estimate of percent cover is thought to give a false sense of precision and cover estimates from mulitple observers rarely agree. Although some precision is lost, categorical classification has good repeatability. The relevÈ method is quick, nonmathimatical, and should detect nearly all plant species in a given community. Range in northeastern Oregon yearly utilization of bluebunch wheatgrass (Agropyron spi-catum) varied from 38 to 69 per-cent, yet the average for the pe-riod was close to 50 percent. He concluded that any adjustments in stocking rate on a basis of year to year use would not be justi-fied. Since methodology used in ap-praising range utilization has.

    The major grasses found in study paddocks were mesa dropseed, threeawns (Aristida spp.), black grama (Bouteloua eriopoda [Torrey] Torrey) and fluffgrass (Dasyochloa pulchella [Kunth] Steudel).The major half-shrubs were broom snakeweed and desert zinnia (Zinnia graniflora Nutt.).Some mesquite (Prosopis glandulosa Torrey) grew in the area.A large number of forb species were present. This method is dependent on the amount of seed / soil contact that can occur and also on the type of grass planted (cool season / warm season). Warm season grasses will RARELY germinate if they simply are laying on top of the ground, unless some action (walking, rain, raking, etc.) causes them to .

management (e.g., estimating biomass for determining stocking rates or fuel loads prior to a prescribed fire). However, the translation of this research into natural resource management has been gradual, most likely due to the use of metric units in the original Robel study (i.e., range pole segments divided by decimeters.

Use of the reference unit method was consistent among observers and is a viable option for estimating and monitoring herbaceous grassland aboveground biomass.

KEY WORDS ANPP, biomass, calibrating estimates, double sampling, mixed grass prairie, observer experience. Figures 1, 2 and 3 show different grasses and the relationship between plant height and weight. Because most of the weight of a grass plant is near the base, 50 percent use by weight is not the same level as 50 percent use by height.

When measuring the height of key grass species, you must follow proper protocol (Figures 4, 5 and 6).

Determining utilization has been one of the most difficult tasks required of range scientists down through the years (Pieper ). Utilization is defined as the portion of the current year's growth of the plant that the animal consumes or destroys. For this reason it is difficult to measure utilization because you are trying to measure something that no longer exists.

Numerous methods have. Our 2 study areas in northwestern New Mexico were within a shortgrass prairie pasture with a long history of moderate cattle grazing and an adjoining area with grazing exclusion since Both areas are controlled by the BLM (lat 34°′N, long °′W).

*Keep in mind that the higher end of the suggested yield estimates are based on the possible production under a rotational grazing system.

If continuous season-long grazing is being practiced, use more conservative yield estimates to avoid overstocking.
