In this study, we investigated the effects of the patch-burn grazing system in restored prairie along the Central Platte River, near Grand Island, Nebraska. Specifically, we wanted to look at the grazing selection by cattle of various forb species and compare the effects on forbs in the burned and unburned portions of a prairie. In addition, we wanted to begin to evaluate the usefulness of the patch-burn grazing system for managing small prairies with cattle and fire.
