Western States Ranches Logo

Western States Ranches has partnered with CSU on two projects that are at the core of addressing climate related issues in agriculture. The first project focused on measuring carbon stored in the soils on grazing properties. This work could help scientists more accurately measure carbon sequestration which could help facilitate carbon markets and pay ranchers for good grazing practices. The second project addresses the Colorado River crisis by looking at deficit irrigation practices to determine how much water can be saved while determining the effects of this practice in reducing forage production.
