Richard Mifflin Kleberg, Jr. Lectureship on Grazing Management

Food and fiber production – it all starts with the soil, water and plants capturing energy from the sun. Effective grazing management involves both science and art and is essential for long-term ranch success. This course provides students the tools to determine correct stocking rate – the ever-changing interface between plants and herbivores.
