Targeted Grazing for Annual Grasses Resource Center

Targeted grazing is the use of livestock grazing to accomplish defined vegetation or landscape goals. In the Great Basin, targeted grazing strategies are being evaluated to reduce the negative impacts of invasive annual grass dominance. This resource center provides information on targeted grazing to 1) reduce fine fuels in fuel breaks and 2) promote desirable vegetation and reduce residual fuels by grazing in the dormant season.

This resource center is not advocating targeted grazing, but providing access to current scientific and practical research. Although all resources on this site have been selected for relevance and quality, they have not been rigorous reviewed by Great Basin Fire Science Exchange. Users of this site should make their own evaluations of any claims made and applicability to their particular management contexts.
