We’ll explore the USDA grant program’s status: Successes and shortcomings

On July 9, 2021, the USDA grabbed headlines when it announced more than $650 million in grants and assistance to U.S. meat processors. Described as part of a “historic commitment to fight monopolization and promote competition across the economy,” the funds were intended to expand capacity in small and very small plants, and to address consolidation in the meat industry.

Three years later, more than $300 million of those funds have been distributed to more than 300 processing...

Article excerpts:

“We have reached the time of year when most our pastures have settled into adequate production enabling us to graze cattle on a more frequent basis. Recently, while discussing pasture/grazing conditions with producers, I’ve noticed three terms being used interchangeably: stocking rate, carrying capacity and stocking density. These terms are very similar in name but very different in meaning. Most producers have a general understanding and experience with some form of grazing management, and generally speaking, try to make the best management decisions they can to maximize the productivity of their pastures. Understanding the differences between stocking rate and stocking density will help producers make better, more informed management decisions.”

Ranching in the West - Yesterday and Today

Learning about grazing and water rights on federally managed public lands is essential to understanding some key factors impacting livestock production and the purchase of ranch land in the West. This is particularly essential information if you are considering a property with grazing and water rights as additional assets.

In the early days of the American West, land was settled through various government acts. Along with settlement, the land's natural resources, like grass, water, and minerals, were claimed. Over time, those same rights were sold or passed down through the generations, and the rights remain in place to this day.

These claimed resources are not “public”...
