The mountainous ranges of the West are commonly used during the summer and have been used in this manner since the settlement of white men over a century ago. Many of these ranges have been mis-managed and are in poor condition. The productivity of these ranges greatly affects the economy of the nation; thus, if ranges in poor condition have a nutritive value lower than ranges in good condition, it results in an economic loss. little work has been done to determine the nutritive value of mountainous summer ranges in good condition compared to similar ranges in poor condition.
