Abstract
  • Climate projections indicate the Great Plains will experience higher mean temperatures and greater interannual precipitation variability in the future.

  • Greater precipitation variability will challenge the economic viability of rangeland beef cattle production by further disrupting forage supply and animal demand.

  • Beef producers are uncertain of future climate impacts, indicating assistance with adaptive strategies is needed.

  • Private-state-national partnerships may help sustain rangelands and economically viable beef cattle production with increasing climate variability.
