Abstract

A study was conducted to evaluate the influence of good (GC) and fair (FC) range condition classes on pronghorn and cattle diets. There was a higher preference for the GC (84%) than for the FC (16%) area (P<0.05). Pronghorn in GC consumed maximum shrubs (51.8%) followed by grasses (29.9%) and forbs (18.3%). In FC the sequence was the same but for the fact that shrubs constituted 83.5%. Whereas, cattle in both conditions consumed mostly grasses (98.5, 93.0%, respectively) and nominal...
