Description: In the United States and many parts of the world, cattle graze native rangelands which are not suitable for crop production due to grade, topography, soil type, or arid conditions. This image shows cattle grazing native rangeland in western North Dakota. The forages in this area a made up of a mixture of cool and warm season grasses. Terrain, soil type, and moisture conditions all limit the productivity of this land for crop production but can be efficiently and effectively managed as grazing land by following good stewardship and grazing management principles.
