Importance and Use of Winter Range in the Intermountain Region
The three papers planned for the postponed Salt Lake City meeting of the Society which are presented in this issue of the Journal all deal with the subject of range management. Since grazing is one of the important uses of many forest lands in the West, these papers will make a more complete picture of multiple use if read in connection with the first set, published in the Journal for September. Captain Molohon's article points out that grazing is of high relative importance in the Intermountain states, that it has a direct relation to other uses of wild and cultivated lands, and that to a large extent it can be successfully coordinated with these uses. Owing to the mountain-valley relations there are summer ranges in the high mountains, spring and fall ranges in the foothill zone, and winter ranges in the arid country often far away from the high mountains and from centers of population. Generally the winter ranges are not on forest lands but are used by livestock which in summer graze on forest and watershed lands. Characteristics of the winter ranges are described in detail, with specific recommendations for their management.
