range management

range management The use of extensive, open grasslands for cattle production or, where appropriate, for the exploitation for human use of semi-domesticated or wild grazing animals (e.g. game cropping on the African savannah) by methods that maintain the ecosystem. These require the determination of the optimum stocking density that will permit long-term cropping of the grassland without deterioration of the pasture.
