There is an excellent book called "In the Prescence of Dinosaurs" where Larry Felder did some pretty amazing paintings in the book, and the author wrote a very interesting idea about how Cretaceous herds could be organized. (Keep in mind that this is only fiction, but very thought-provoking): The more durable ceratopsians would have used their bulk and jaws to plow through vegetation in the first wave of migrants; next would be the hadrosaurines (wide-beaked duckbills) that would crop the vast majority of knocked down vegetation; and finally the lambeosaurines (narrow-beaked, thus selectively-feeding duckbills) to pick through the remaining plants.
A very interesting idea, but no factual proof to back it up.
That's an interesting idea, sounds like something that would be done. I know it can be done with farm animals. Send cows in to take care of all the succulent pastures, then goats to clean up the brush, and less appealing pieces. Then poultry to get any seed heads, scraps, insects (naturally occurring or brought on by the manure)....interesting thought though.
