Identification : 5409-21610-001-03N

Pays : Etats Unis

Durée : Sep 15, 2009 à Sep 14, 2014

Domaine : Rangelands and grasslands, general ; Remote sensing equipment and technology ; Weeds ;

Partenaire : CROW VALLEY LIVESTOCK COOP INC FORT COLLINS,

Objectif
To carry out cooperative rangeland research primarily addressing vegetation change induced by management practices and associated livestock responses to these changes on the Pawnee National Grasslands and adjacent rangelands, and to continue the fundamental research conducted by both ARS and the Crow Valley Livestock Cooperative, Inc. (CVLCI).

Descriptif
The Crow Valley Livestock Cooperative, Inc., (CVLCI) has the capacity to furnish each year at the times requested for each grazing season, the number of each class, sex, and weight of beef cattle needed for cooperative investigations involving grazing animals on the Central Plains Experimental Range (CPER). This organization has cooperatively participated in rangeland research at the CPER for the past 65 years. Cattle furnished by CVLCI will graze on experimental pastures in the manner and amounts deemed necessary for research purposes, including overgrazing a certain part of the rangeland, or application of other stress treatments, for comparison with other treatments.
