Targeted Grazing Handbook - Inventory Reduction
September 2, 2016

The American Sheep Industry Association is holding a larger than expected inventory of its 2006 publication of the Targeted Grazing Handbook and would like to put these copies into the hands of people who can put them to good use.

Employing livestock to manipulate vegetation is as old as grazing itself. Promoting grazing to manage vegetation as a paid service - typically called prescribed or targeted grazing - is a more recent phenomenon. As targeted grazing has gained a foothold in the land management arena, both research and experience have evolved to provide land managers and grazing-service providers with more definitive tools for managing vegetation.

The Targeted Grazing Handbook represents a compilation of research on harnessing livestock to graze targeted vegetation in ways that improve the function and appearance of a wide variety of landscapes. The handbook is organized both as an introduction to targeted grazing for the novice and as a useful reference for those already familiar with the topic.

While supplies last, ASI is offering this handbook for the cost of shipping. To ship one book, the cost is only $3.25; two books will cost $3.75. Anyone interested in receiving a copy of this reference guide can contact Zahrah at zahrah@sheepusa.org or 303-771-3500, ext. 108.
