RANGE CONDITIONS

Utah's rangelands were in very poor condition at the beginning of the 1900's due to unregulated livestock grazing. With the advent of modern range management, however, vegetation conditions have improved dramatically throughout south-central Utah. In general, Utah's rangelands are healthier today than at any time during the last 100 years. Shown is Plate 46 near Sargent Lake in the Tusher Mountains. Note the significant increase in plant cover and forage production.
