USDA Rangeland Survey looking for Montana Range Experts
Lance Vermeire, Rangeland Ecologist at USDA-ARS, Fort Keogh Livestock & Range Research Laboratory is part of a group of range scientists from across the western US working on a project to distill adaptable and easily-assessed livestock grazing management principles for use in semi-arid and arid rangelands. This is in response to a request from JBS USA for succinct livestock grazing management principles to incorporate into their sustainable grazing management partnerships and initiatives. Lance is asking for your input as an expert in livestock grazing management. He is conducting a survey of a broad range of practitioners, researchers, educators, and more to collectively create a dataset that can be iteratively analyzed to distill a set of principles that will then be further debated and distilled. The survey is open through the end of August. To participate click on this link survey
