Research Station, Kamloops, British Columbia. Highlight Yearling sfeers on lodgepole pinepinegrass summer range in British Columbia had an average daily gain of 1.75 lb for 103 days per year over a 5-year period. The average gain per acre was 19.3 lb for the season and the average stocking rate was 4.8 acres per AUM. Pinegrass, which provided over 50% of the forage yield, was readily accepted by cattle during early summer but became unpalatable by mid August.
