DescriptionAs an aid to securing increased efficiency in range cattle production, this bulletin presents some of the latest results of investigations made in Colorado by the Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station. These results have been obtained on short-grass ranges and on ponderosa pine-bunchgrass ranges and are applicable in general to most of the plains and mountainous areas of the State. In addition to these research results, some of the important items in ranch operation, which should be checked periodically, are discussed.
