Grazing Management

Wyoming's grazing lands are incredibly important wildlife habitat. There are 27.5 million acres of grazed rangeland in Wyoming. Grazing systems are designed to be beneficial for livestock, and if designed properly, they can also benefit wildlife that are present or that are desired to be present. In general, poor grazing management negatively affects wildlife, plants, and soil, as well as livestock weight gains and production.Good grazing management provides a sustainable system that promotes optimal growth and care of the forage resource.

Prescribed Burning

The Wyoming Guidelines for Managing Sagebrush Communities with Emphasis on Fire Management, has recently been completed through a cooperative effort by representatives from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service, and Natural Resource Conservation Service.
