GrazingHandbook.com was developed by Dr. Llewellyn L. Manske, Range Scientist at the North Dakota State University Dickinson Research Extension Center in Dickinson, North Dakota.

This collection of reports provides information enabling livestock producers and grassland managers to understand and operate twelve-month pasture-forage management strategies that are both biologically effective and economically efficient. The strategies presented are designed to meet the biological requirements of forage plants and facilitate ecological processes, to provide the nutrients range cows require during their production periods, to efficiently capture new economic wealth from land resources, to improve grassland habitat for wildlife, and to enhance the aesthetic appeal of grassland landscapes.

These reports are in PDF format and require Adobe Acrobat to view and print. If you do not already have Acrobat on your computer, click on the Acrobat icon to the left to download.
