In the summer of 1965 a survey was made of 160 farmers in Faulk, Aurora, Hyde, and Gregory counties to determine their experience in beef cattle production and pasture management. This survey marked the early phase of a joint project with the Departments of Economics, Agronomy, and Animal Science title “The Efficiency of Beef Cattle Production in South Dakota with Various Methods of Land Use and Cattle Management.” The project involves developing new techniques for pasture improvement—the focus of this study—and testing various management practices.
