Livestock and Range Management
The Livestock and Range Management Program focuses on efforts to keep range livestock and the rangeland itself healthy and productive, and to encourage the healthy coexistence of introduced livestock and native plant and animal species in the range environment.
The Watershed and Natural Resources Program focuses on improving our understanding of rangeland water quality, watershed function, and natural resources management. Emphasis is on management strategies which maintain productive land use while maintaining or enhancing watershed and other wildland values. Groundwater has long played an important role in the development, growth, and sustainability of Lassen County and it's residents.
UC Davis Veterinary Views are articles on animal health issues published monthly by Dr. John Maas in California Cattlemen. These "Vet View" Fact Sheets contain information about important issues related to beef cattle, such as reproductive health, BSE control and prevention, fly control, treating calf scours, bovine tuberculosis, pinkeye prevention, foot rot, etc.
University of California Cooperative Extension's Livestock and Natural Resources website is designed to provide research-based and scientifically sound natural resource management information for rangeland owners, managers, and livestock producers.
California Rangelands Research and Information Center website has links to water quality, California vegetation, and livestock production information.
Ecologically-Based Invasive Plant Management (EBIPM) is a framework providing land managers guidelines to make the best management decisions for a given landscape based on ecological principles. Through a step-by-step process, it focuses on getting to the roots of the problem rather than merely covering up the symptoms of invasive annual grasses and other invasive species. By addressing the causes of invasive plant infestations, EBIPM offers solutions to achieve healthy sustainable rangeland.
