2012 GLCI Grazing Forum: Riparian Grazing Management - Highlighting Successful Producers
The Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative and the Society for Range Management would like to announce a Riparian Grazing Management Forum to be held in conjunction with the Society for Range Management 2012 Annual Conference in Spokane, Washington. The intent of the forum is to highlight successful ranchers who practice progressive and ecologically sound riparian grazing management practices in their day-to-day operations. The forum will highlight the conservation benefits of not only riparian systems and their ecological function but how, cattle can be utilized as an effective natural resource management tool. The forum will discuss the value of grazing management in riparian systems and the benefit provided by the proper use of sound grazing principles.
