Activities and Grazing Habits of Sheep on Summer Ranges
A study of sheep management was conducted during three summer grazing seasons on national forest range in western Colorado. During this study the grazing habits and activities of individual range sheep were closely observed, the influence of management or herding practices on the daily activities of sheep was determined, and forage preferences exhibited by ewes and lambs were established. From these observations several practical suggestions for handling sheep on summer range have been developed and are presented in this article.
