The Influence of Offstream Water and Protein Supplementation on Late-Season Cattle Distribution, Animal Performance and Utilization Grant uri icon



  • A better understanding of the interactions between cattle grazing and montane-riparian shrub utilization is critical to sustaining the ecological intergrity of riparian and aquatic habitats in the Intermountain West. In conjunction with Eastern Oregon multicultural Research Center, this study is designed to assess management strategies to improve cattle distribution, decrease improper grazing of montane riparian shrubs and provide riparian shrub utilization criteria for rangeland managers.
