Livestock grazing helps California tackle wildfire - 2

Research by UC Cooperative Extension Advisor Laura Snell and her colleagues showed that rangeland doesn’t need to be “rested” following a fire. 

USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) is accepting comments on the Pasture, Rangeland, Forage (PRF) contractors report and alternative recommendations.

“Long term, it is essential that RMA give cattlemen a seat at the table in developing its risk management tools,” the California Cattlemen’s Association said in a released statement. “In the short term, however, these harmful adjustments to PRF are likely to be implemented unless RMA is flooded with comments from impacted producers.”

The deadline to submit comments has been extended to Dec. 21 and can be submitted to rma.kcviri@usda.gov or by mail to Director, Product Administration and Standards Division, Risk Management Agency, United States Department of Agriculture, P.O. Box 419205, Kansas City, MO 64133-6205.
