Planting a diversity of Native Warm Season Grasses and Native Cool Season Grasses builds soil health, extends the grazing season, as well as creates habitat to sustain wildlife. Roots that reach deep in the soil for nutrients are enriched by decaying plant material. During the dormant season, livestock forage is balanced by the native cool season grasses’ high protein growth, which is green beneath the stemmy dry matter from last summer’s native warm season grasses. Wildlife finds food and cover in diverse stages of plant growth throughout the year.
