Title: Fence Designs for Improved Rangeland Management
Author: Conlon, Tom; Kirby, Donald R.
Description: At the time of this writing, it was estimated that the production of livestock from western grazing lands could be increased by 50-100% with the proper intensive management systems in place. Fencing is the most effective means of directly controlling livestck grazing distribution for uniform use of all areas and plants, improved livestock performance and increased carrying capacity of range lands. Fencing needs to be coupled with an effective grazing management plan or system. This article reports on improved designs, new and cheaper materials, the installation and maintenance costs of three internal fence designs used in a short duration grazing system located at the Dickinson Experiment Station
