Grazing and Range Management: Proper management of grazing animals can have benefits to the community and the economy, and can even result in fire protection and weed management. However, poorly managed grazing can result in erosion, degradation, and defoliation of grazed lands, and can result in sediment and pollution to nearby creeks and waterways. The RCD has programs and services for financial or technical assistance with grazing and range management.
Mud and Manure Management: Muddy pastures and poorly managed manure can harm the heath of horses and livestock, create pasture erosion, and contribute to runoff of sediment and pollution to nearby creeks and waterways. The RCD has programs and services for horse and livestock owners needing financial or technical assistance with mud and manure management on their properties.
