dc.description.abstract Sericea lespedeza (Lespedeza cuneata) is a noxious weed that infests approximately 600,000 acres of native tallgrass range in Kansas. Intake of sericea lespedeza by grazing livestock is poor, presumably as a result of the plant’s tannins. Condensed tannins reduce protein digestion by ruminants and may also decrease plant palatability. en_US
