If you cannot measure rangelands you cannot change them.
Fifty Percent of the Earth’s land surface is occupied by rangelands. The biggest impact to rangelands is grazing whether it is done by wildlife or livestock. Grazing impacts can positively or negatively effect whether water and carbon are held in the soil. While grazing impacts may be small on any given acre they can have negative global effects larger than nuclear or spill disasters. When managed properly, grazing can improve water quality, water quantity, remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and provide food and fiber. Open Range Consulting’s mission is to globally improve grazing management so the positive impacts can be shared with all the inhabitants the earth.
