PROFITABILITY OF ESTABLISHING BASIN WILDRYE FOR WINTER GRAZING

This study examined the economic viability of establishing basin wildrye for winter grazing. Mixed integer-programming models were developed that minimized cow feed costs. Estimated basin wildrye establishment costs were $154 per acre. Break-even basin wildrye yields were approximately 2.6 and 2.3 AUMs/acre for March and May calving scenarios, respectively.
