Grazing/Livestock – Prairie junegrass is a component of many native plant communities. It commonly represents up to 5 percent of the community. It greens up early in the spring and provides good early spring forage and fair late spring forage for livestock.
Wildlife – Prairie junegrass is considered a fair to good forage for elk throughout the year and is desirable forage for deer and antelope in the spring and early summer.
Reclamation – Prairie junegrass is used as a component of native seed mixtures in re-vegetation of mined lands, heavy use areas and other surface disturbed lands.
