Paicines Ranch:  Rangeland

Rangeland

Historically, the rangelands of Paicines Ranch were grazed continuously by cattle. Over the last few years, sheep have been added and management practices have shifted towards mimicking of natural grazing patterns using holistic planned grazing. Through this practice, livestock moves are based on allowing ample recovery time for both plants and soil in order to increase health and productivity. One of the first benefits of this practice has been a considerable increase in native perennial grasses.
