CONT

Afin de maintenir une prairie mixte en bonne santé, on doit continuer à avoir recours au pacage rotatif et au brûlage contrôlé. Le surpâturage peut entraîner la disparition de plusieurs espèces. Cependant, son absence peut favoriser la croissance de plantes ligneuses et conduire à une accumulation de litière végétale, ce qui étoufferait certaines espèces indigènes.
