IN THE SOUTHWEST, sustained production of lowcost
range forage is a vital factor in profitable livestock
raising. Every stockman needs to know when he
has grazed his range to a degree that will still insure an
equal or greater production of forage in the years to follow.
Accurate judging of range condition-being able
to determine from present evidence whether the range is
actually improving, or whether it is "going downhill"-is
essential. As far as possible, actual facts must be the
basis of judging. The purpose of this bulletin is to point
out indicators of range conditions, their significance,
how to detect deterioration in its early stages, and other
indicators of proper and improper range use.
