Considerations for strategically reducing fuels and wildfires on public lands with targeted grazing

View report.

Targeted livestock grazing must be carefully implemented and monitored to meet fuels
management objectives on an annual and long-term basis. Grazing to reduce fuels on a
landscape must be both strategic and surgical. Surgical means that targeted livestock grazing
will be done to the level and limited to the minimum area needed to meet fuel and landscape
or project management objectives within BLM’s regulatory framework. Therefore, sound
project planning is essential.
