Some Economic Effects Of Restricted Grazing On Public Land In Colorado


  • Mack, L.E.
  • Taylor, R.G.


Federal lands comprise 36 percent of the total area of Colorado. At present the primary use of these lands is livestock grazing. Pressures exist to reduce or, in some instances, eliminate livestock grazing. This study, through the use of typical ranch models structured by herd size and regional characteristics, examines how the range livestock industry would respond to hypothesized reductions in federal forage availability.
