Ladder Livestock (CAP) Grazing Plan

Ladder Livestock (CAP) Grazing Plan

The components of a grazing conservation activity plan are defined by the Natural Resource Conservation Service and include an inventory of ranch infrastructure, forage inventories, estimations of grazing utilization and a rangeland trend evaluation. Information from these inventories is used to complete forage balance worksheets and develop a grazing rotation plan that will preserve rangeland condition while meeting animal forage needs. Ecological Range Site maps were developed by evaluating edaphic, topographic and vegetative characteristics per NRCS guidelines to supplement forage descriptions.
