Livestock & Range Management

About Range Management and Livestock

Bay Area open spaces, both privately and publicly owned, are largely used for livestock grazing. Maintaining these working landscapes near large urban centers presents many challenges addressed by UCCE, such as:

  • Protecting water quality
  • Controlling invasive species
  • Providing wildlife habitat, including endangered species
  • Maintaining open space

This program is geared toward private landowners; resource management professionals working on private, State and Federal lands; and other groups such as users of public lands, conservation organizations, and the agriculture and forest products industries.
