Buffalograss is a low-growing, sod forming grass that has separate male and female plants. The grass is a grayish-green during growth and turns yellow during maturity. The grass is excellent for grazing cattle and sheep and fair for goats. Cattle will preferentially graze the grass to the point of causing bare areas. This said, it is difficult for cattle to overgraze the short leaves and stems of buffalograss. Buffalograss cures well for winter grazing. It is excellent for erosion control areas and in lawns.
