Livestock & Grazing

Resource Definition

Livestock: domesticated animals raised in an agricultural setting to create food,
fiber, labor, or other products.
Grazing: a method of feeding whereby domestic livestock consume plant material
and then convert it into meat, milk and other products.

Who controls or influences the resource the most?

In large part, private property owners, ranchers, and farm operators control this resource where occurring on private property. Where grazing takes place on federal lands, federal land managers are responsible for the regulations and restrictions.
