DescriptionA growing population is requring more and more products from the land. As demand for beef and other rangeland products increases, so does the need for more intensive management. Stockmen and other managers of private and public rangelands in the West are concerned with stocking the range to restore and maintain satisfactory forage production and quality, soil stability, and livestock production. For economic reasons the rancher grazing cattle on his own land must know how to maintain high forage production and how to produce maximum yields of high-quality beef. The goal of managers of public range is also to improve and maintain the range resource while obtaining maximum beef production.
