Targeted Grazing For Vegetation Management

What is Targeted Grazing?  Targeted grazing is defined as:

Targeted grazing uses livestock timing, frequency, intensity, and selectivity to apply herbivory pressure on target plant species or portions of the landscape to reach specific vegetation objectives. It can be a useful tool to manipulate plant cover in both mature plant communities and in areas recovering from disturbance. Although a simple concept, it is more complex in practice and relies on an understanding of several different interacting factors, including the interactions between plants and herbivores. These reports delve into the details of plant-herbivore interactions, and the various considerations that should be taken into account when developing a targeted grazing prescription in western Canada.

How to Use the Range Plant Community Guides and Recovery Strategies

Unfortunately with a number of late cancellations for the Range Plant Community Guides & Recovery Strategies Workshop scheduled for September 13th, 2023 we’ve had to make the tough decision to cancel the workshop for this fall due to insufficient registrations for a cost recovery event.  We will be offering the same workshop in conjunction with the CLRA Conference in March 2024.  The GRF Mailing list will receive notice/announcements about the event as details become available.

We are still proceeding as planned with the Grassland Assessment Classroom & Hands on Field Training on September 14th at the Cassils Hall/Antelope Creek Ranch.

Apologies for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
