Abstract
In trials with Hereford steers grazing blue grama rangeland given no fertilizer or 36 kg N/ha, av. daily OM intake decreased with advancing plant maturity in both treatments. N fertilization did not increase OM intake except during the latter part of the growing season. During dormancy, OM intake was slightly higher on unfertilized range probably because N fertilization increased stem growth preferentially.
