Grazing management requires flexibility to adapt to ever-changing climatic conditions, and changes in grazing management for public lands may be required because of endangered or threatened species. In adaptive grazing management, grazing decisions are evaluated in a continuous loop by using rangeland monitoring to track results on the ground.

This publication provides an introduction to some tools and methods used in adaptive grazing management in either a rangeland or an irrigated pasture setting. Ranchers employing adaptive management in their grazing plans are more nimble in meeting climatic and political challenges in a sometimes unpredictable landscape.
