It's interesting how you said that there is a greater diversity of plants and animals on grazed and managed grasslands. This makes a lot of sense because there will be protection from predators and poachers on private property as well as well groomed grasses or other grazing plants. We just moved into a house with lots of land so maybe we'll have to see if there is a ranch for sale nearby that we might be able to get to put some animals on.

Never did I imagine cattle ranching offers many benefits for the public, such as improving the land's ecosystem. My dad has a ranch land that he does not know what to to with. Maybe I can recommend to him to have cattle raised.

My cousin has been thinking about starting cattle farming, so that she can be more effective. Making sure that she can get some help from a professional could be really useful to get the right set up. I liked what you said about how they should make sure to keep the ranch intact, and improve the habitat for a butterfly with grazing.

Thanks for your comment, Adam. Your cousin should consult her local Cooperative Extension office for advice about cattle ranching before starting.

Jeannette, thank you for explaining the many benefits of cattle ranching. It was interesting to learn that cattle help to reduce wildfires by decreasing the dry grass that fuels them. My dad is very interested in cattle ranching, and I think that it would be beneficial for him to buy his first bull from a reliable cattle farm.

My uncle is terrified that the dry grass on his land will cause a wildfire someday. It is close to the freeway and a forest so there is a lot of potential danger and damage to be done. Maybe I can convince him to raise cattle so they can help reduce the amount of dry grass on his land.

I am a veterinarian, serving in government sector livestock Services in Bangladesh. I voluntarily work in pasture based cattle rearing in my country. I am interested in learning more on ranching cattle and the impacts of that in ecosystem, food chain, economy, employment and many more diverse benefits of doing ranches.
