Ranching



Western Biological can help increase the profitability of your operation by evaluating overall rangeland health and adaptively managing your grazing plan. We begin by assessing soil components to predict forage production and use models to determine departure from historic conditions. We assess riparian health, and devise and implement plans to halt or reverse erosion, aggrade your water table, and increase the total tonnage production of meadows and hay ground. We identify uplift opportunities and maximize the resistance and resilience of your rangeland to issues like wildfire and invasive plants.


Through recognizing and achieving the potential of both your summer and winter range, we minimize the negative impacts of stressors like predation and anthropogenic disturbance on your herd, so you increase recruitment and ship fatter, happier calves and lambs.
