Rangeland management impacts the health and productivity of native grasslands and shrublands, forests and tame pastures. When rangelands are  healthy, present and future generations benefit from clean water, available forage, and fish and wildlife habitat values.

What is Stewardship

Successful rangeland stewardship is achieved through the application of the principles of range management to maintain range and riparian health and ensure successful resource integration on the land.

The Principles of Range Management

  1. Balance forage supply and demand
  2. Avoid grazing during vulnerable periods
  3. Distribute livestock evenly
  4. Provide effective rest
