What is a Diverse Native Grassland? And what are its benefits? Watch as Colt Hamilton explains the benefits and establishment of a Diverse Native Grassland. A Diverse Native Grassland utilizes the highly productive native warm season grasses and adds the diversity and productivity of the native cool season grasses, native forbs, and native legumes for year-round plant growth, soil health, and wildlife habitat. This is what the bison thrived on, and cattle love it just the same. And, not only is a Diverse Native Grassland good for livestock, it is also as good as it gets for soil health and wildlife.
