Developing Solutions to Beef Cattle Concerns

Beef produced on pasture and rangeland forages and dual-purpose winter wheat in the U.S. Southern Great Plains provides a significant portion of the nation’s red meat; constitutes the largest land use and agricultural enterprise in the region; and is subject to a widely variable climate. The aim of this project is to answer critically important research questions and deliver Extension programming about impacts of weather, climate variability and climate change on system vulnerability and resilience. Our long-term goals are to: better understand vulnerability and enhance resilience of beef-grazing systems in a world of increased climate variability, dynamic land-use, and fluctuating markets safeguard regional production while mitigating the environmental footprint of agriculture
