To study vegetation, soil, and livestock gain responses to grazing management (e.g., adaptive grazing, stocking rates) conducted at the USDA-ARS High Plains Grasslands Research Station located in Cheyenne, WY. Both parties are interested in fundamental research and the parties agree that meeting the objectives of this project will serve to strengthen and enhance the research programs of both entities by furthering the understanding of range research results having regional or national application and for improvement.
The Cooperator has the capacity to furnish each year at the times requested for each grazing season, the number of each class, sex, and weight of beef cattle needed for cooperative investigations involving grazing animals on the High Plains Grasslands Research Station (HPGRS). Cattle furnished by the Cooperator will graze on experimental pastures in the manner and amounts deemed necessary for research purposes, including overgrazing a certain part of the rangeland, or application of other stress treatments, for comparison with other treatments.
