Who are we?
The Targeted Grazing Committee (TGC) is a self formed committee of practitioners, land managers, research and extension personnel that formed in 2009. The TGC will contribute to the SRM mission which is: to promote the professional development and continuing education of members and the public and the stewardship of rangeland resources.
What is Targeted Grazing?
Since the 2006 publication of “Targeted Grazing: A Natural Approach to Vegetation Management and Landscape Enhancement”, the term targeted grazing has been defined as the application of a specific kind of livestock at a determined season, duration, and intensity to accomplish defined vegetation or landscape goals. Examples of these goals include: weed control, fire risk reduction, and wildlife habitat enhancement.
Simply put targeted grazing is the carefully controlled grazing of livestock to accomplish specific vegetation management objectives.
