Cattle thrive on Northern Great Plains, Mixed Grass Prairie

PFM experts Van Elsbernd and Frank Carroll spend eight months assisting local ranchers in the Lemmon, SD area deal with the aftermath of one of the worst wild fires in the region in the past several decades.  The fire, started by Forest Service personnel using prescribed fire to suppress crested wheat grass, had the opposite effect, Elsbernd said.  The fire actually increased crested wheat grass across 10,800 acres of mostly private lands and Grand River Cooperative Grazing Association lands.
