Computer Program To Help Ranchers With Land Management

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — Researchers say a new computer database will help ranchers manage their grazing land.

The program analyzes historical and simulated data and predicts future plant growth. It is expected to guide ranchers in deciding how many animals to graze on native range.

The program´s developers say it provides more accurate predictions about potential plant growth, so ranchers can adjust to drought or other conditions that affect pastures.
