Experts say managed grazing benefits forests

From the California Farm Bureau Federation's Food and Farm News:
Livestock grazing can reduce fuel for wildfires, but analysts say the number of animals allowed to graze on federal land in California has dropped significantly. Federal agencies have changed their policies, restricting areas on which cattle, sheep and other livestock may graze. University of California researchers say well-managed grazing can decrease vegetation that fuels wildfires, and grazing management has become increasingly sophisticated.
