Biologically Effective Grazing Management Reduces the Detrimental Effects from Drought Conditions on Grasslands

The Grazing Handbook (Research Report, Dickinson REC, October 2014)

This collection of reports provides information enabling livestock producers and grassland managers to understand and operate twelve-month pasture-forage management strategies that are both biologically effective and economically efficie

Grazing Management Publications
The purpose of this publication is to provide annual forage options that can be used in cover crop mixtures for livestock grazing and/or hay production. The use of cover crops in a cropping rotation has been resurrected in recent years due…
Cyanide, prussic acid and hydrocyanic acid are all terms describing the same toxic substance. It is one of the most rapidly acting toxins that affect mammals. Cyanide is a lethal ingredient that has been used in rodent and vermin killers.
Establishing the correct stocking rate is critical in optimizing forage performance and maintaining animal performance while ensuring the sustained health and production of the grassland resources.
One of the most important grazing management decisions land managers make is selecting a start date for grazing tam pasture and native range. Monitoring grazing readiness ensures that grazing starts at the proper time, when plants are…
Livestock producers and land owners have asked for a simple and fair method to determine pasture rental rates. This tends to be a difficult question to answer as prices can vary from region to region due to market demand and supply.…
A pictorial guide of ecological sites common to North Dakota
The objective of this study was to determine if patch burning can increase mineral concentration of forage in rangeland pastures. Forage calcium, phosphorus, copper and zinc concentration was greater in burned areas than in unburned areas…
Unfavorable growing conditions can result in stressed crops that are not suitable for harvest. With proper management, they may be utilized as feed or forage for livestock. Stressed crops resulting from unfavorable weather conditions…
This publication is guide to help determine forage production of range, pasture, and other grazing resources. Once forage production for a grazing resource has been determined, carrying capacity and stocking rate can be calculated.
This publication is guide to help sample livestock forage and feed for laboratory analysis. Feed analysis is one of the most effective feed and forage management tools to effectively match forage and feed supplies to animal nutrient…
