Livestock grazing is an important tool in effective, sustainable range management. In days gone by, people that owned cows and raised calves tended to think of themselves purely as beef producers. In the more modern cattle industry, we understand the use of herds as grass farmers, with cows being the vehicle to harvest forage and manage the land, and the calves being purely a commodity for sale. Experts can assist ranchers in the planning and proper execution of these and many other related projects. Twenty-six percent (26%) of the Earth’s ice-free land is used for livestock grazing and thirty three percent (33%) of croplands are used for livestock feed production. Importantly, livestock contribute to seven percent (7%) of the total greenhouse gas emissions through enteric fermentation and manure. Anaerobic digestion can assist here.
When selecting a consultant to assist with grazing programs, one should seek an expert with advanced degrees in some type of ruminant nutrition and cattle production, and one with practical experience in delivering supplement feeding programs and animal management programs. In sustainable range management and land stewardship matters, the expert will likely have advanced degrees in land management, natural resource management, wildlife management, or even agronomy.
