Managed Grazing in the Intermountain West

Rangeland scientists from Western land-grant universities and the federal government are studying issues surrounding managed grazing systems in the Intermountain West. The multistate WERA1002 committee, funded through NIFA, has three objectives:

  • develop inventories of existing expertise and publications related to environmentally and economically sustainable integrated livestock grazing systems;
  • develop appropriate regional use protocols for selection and testing of grazing-related forage species or varieties of potential use in integrated livestock grazing systems; and
  • provide and exchange information related to integrated livestock grazing systems for dissemination through field days, workshops, Web pages, publications, symposia, and other outlets.

The committee meets annually in Salt Lake City during January. For more information, contact Jim Dobrowolski.
