Also, depending on the grass, it can have deeper roots and or breaks off
more easily at the root stem junction so when livestock graze, the roots
aren't pulled out of the ground and can regrow and participate in
erosion control. Goats will eat the roots right out of the ground, they
are bad animals for settlements but require nomadic herding to sustain a
group of people.
