Grazing on public lands provides benefits, not environmental damage

Grazing on public lands has become a controversial subject in some circles. But Bill Hopkin says properly managed grazing can be beneficial to that land, even in the arid West. Hopkin says dry years can take a toll on grazing, but not so much if proper steps are taken. He spoke during a Cattlemen’s College session at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Cattle Industry Convention in Nashville.
