Two-hundred and fourteen mixed breed light weight steers (average initial wt: 311 +or- 37 lb) and 115 mixed breed heavier weight steers (average initial weight: 584 +or- 37 lb) were used to evaluate the effects of stocking rate on weight gain of steers grazing Plains old world bluestem (OWB, Bothriochloa ischaemum) from 29 May 1997 through 5 August 1997. Three stocking rates were used; 1.5, 1.1, and 0.7 acres/500 lb of initial steer live weight for light, moderate, and heavy stocking rates.
