Technical Abstract: Measuring cattle utilization of forages is an important tool to guide management of grazing. We found that assessing utilization with height-weight curves can lead to utilization estimates not consistent with expectations. Visual assessments of grazing that incorporate a manager’s expertise is a more appropriate way to assess and manage grazing at the pasture scale.
