Range riders can improve grazing management for rangeland health, livestock production, and coexistence with wildlife, potentially including large carnivores, by applying strategic grazing management. In this project, practical conservationists partnered with progressive ranchers in western Montana to develop herding methods for strategic grazing management. We compared and combined two approaches to herding cattle at relatively high stocking density within a rangeland pasture in a larger grazing rotation.
