Cochise Rangeland Management
Range livestock production is a significant part of the economic base of Southeastern Arizona. Twenty-three percent of the range beef cattle in the state occur in Cochise, Graham and Greenlee Counties with a value of $42 million according to the 2007 Arizona Agricultural Statistics Bulletin. The intermingled ownership of federal, state and private lands creates a need to balance livestock grazing with natural resources.

Arizona’s rangelands provide both ecological and economic benefits. Monitoring the condition of rangelands over time is important to ranchers, researchers, public land management agencies, and the general public. The UA Cooperative Extension Rangeland Monitoring programs assist in collecting this important data used for land management decisions.
