Objectifs
1. Gather information from a sample of Wyoming cattle producers regarding management strategies and reource issues to be considered in analysis. 2. Analyze cattle production systems and management strategies identified in 1. 3. Develop mathematical optimization models that integrate biophysical and economic data. 4. Use these results as basis for educational programs and publications to help producers develop pro-active drought management strategies and provide basis for further research and grant applications

Descriptif
A survey will be conducted for a statistically valid sample of Wyoming cattle producers. This survey will document, location and size of operation, enterprise combinations, resource base, grazing rotations, feed use and timing, calving period, marketing strategies, and any federal land use or participation in government programs, as well as drought management strategies used in their operation. This data will be coupled with biophysical data in a multiple period mathematical optimization model to evaluate the economic and environmental sustainability of drought mitigation strategies.
