#DYK that Well-Managed, Healthy Rangelands Offer a Wide Variety of Benefits to the Community?
The BLM works toward supporting healthy rangelands to have a positive impact on communities. Well-managed and healthy rangelands allow for livestock grazing, carbon sequestration, habitat for wildlife, and more. The meat and fiber from livestock grazing supports the national economy, as well as rural communities. Just as ranching contributes to the socioeconomic well-being of American communities, conscientious grazing also helps keep America’s publicly-owned rangelands healthy and in balance.
