Texas' grazing lands are a critical natural resource and managing them is both a science and an art. With this publication, even those who are new to land ownership/management will have all the tools and information needed to be good stewards of the land. The book has three sections: Grazing Basics (what makes land healthy, livestock nutrition, forage quality, water and fences, grazing behavior), Getting Started (setting goals, land inventories, grazing strategies), and Follow Through (record keeping, managing livestock, managing wildlife habitat). Each chapter concludes with a helpful list of actions you can take to better manage your land. (148 pp.; numerous color photos, tables, charts and graphs)
