CGS Fall Seminar Series – Mitchell Stephenson

Tracking Cattle Grazing: GPS and Diet Selection

3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Zoom Webinar
Liz Husmann, (402) 472-4101,
Domestic livestock on extensive landscapes make grazing decisions at multiple spatial and temporal scales. Research in western Nebraska is using innovative technologies to explore how cattle make decisions at the grazing patch (area selected during a grazing bout) and what variables influence diet selection at the individual plant level. The objective of this research is to determine what variables influence grazing distribution and grazing pressure at defined locations. With this knowledge, producers can better manage livestock grazing through targeted grazing for defined ecosystem management objectives.
