Abstract: The effects on herbage yield and botanical composition of different clipping dates and subsequent removal or return of forage to bluestem range were studied. Yield of herbage was greatest under August 1 clipping. Removing clipped herbage reduced yields. Desirable species decreased under mid-summer clipping. Increaser species were favored by removing clipped forage.
