Regrowth and utilization of T. dactyloides were evaluated by observing changes in plant height before and after grazing by cattle. Initial stubble height did not affect regrowth in either a subirrigated or a dryland site in Oklahoma, USA. Initial stubble height did not affect cattle preference for T. dactyloides at the subirrigated site where approximately 83% of regrowth was utilized during the second grazing period.
