According to the USDA, U.S. ranchers own nearly 32 million beef cows, worth about $70 billion. As managing these herds and the grasslands they need for forage becomes more difficult due to climate change, we talked to Dr. Hailey Wilmer about the CARM (Collaborative Adaptive Rangeland Management) project in Colorado, that brings ranchers and agricultural researchers together to find management solutions that are informed by science and work in the real world.
