Grazing After the Burn

The 2012 fire season impacted thousands of acres of rangeland and forestland. For livestock owners and many land managers, one key question is when to resume grazing on the burned area. This decision can have a significant influence over whether the long-term effect of a fire is beneficial or detrimental to a range pasture or grazed forestland.
