 “Outreach on Grazing Lands to Enhance Economic Analysis (Cost Benefits) for Conservation Changes”


TSFR/CBO has provided a letter of support for a pending grant for The National Grazing Lands Coalition with a potential project partnership in conducting outreach/education/demonstration opportunities on how prescribed grazing impacts pasture and range productivity, economics, and conservation.  The cornerstone of the project will be the analysis of the influence of grazing management systems and kind/class of animals on economic performance at the enterprise level.  With this approach, NGLC will work with a large group of producers, located in seven different geographic areas, to assemble economic data that can link improvements in management to economic returns.
