Abstract

On the Ground

  • Targeted grazing is an increasingly popular tool for managing vegetation over large landscapes.

  • While the principles of targeted grazing are scientifically based, the successful practice of targeted grazing requires site-specific knowledge of plant growth, animal nutrition and grazing behavior, ecosystem function, and public relations.

  • Targeted grazing requires significant producer investment—in livestock, infrastructure and equipment, and knowledge.
