This publication graphically portrays how the development of improved grazing land in Florida, through the planting of foreign grasses and clovers, has brought immense benefit to cattlemen and dairymen of the state of Florida. Native grasses that have been depended upon for more than two centuries provided seasonal grazing only, while introduced grasses afford exceptionally good pastures for as long as eight or nine month of the year.
