A cafeteria-style study was conducted during the winter for two years with tame mule deer to determine if there were preferential differences between accessions of forage kochia (Kochia prostrata). Deer consumed significantly more of P.I. numbers 314929, 330708, and 356826 than any of the other accessions. Other plant adaptive characteristics and nutritive qualities are also reported.
