A new book, titled Amazing Grazing, has been published to help school children and the general public learn more about the positive aspects of grazing manage-ment.
The book spot-lights three Montana ranchers – Bob Lee, Ray Marxer and Tom Milesnick – all of whom have been rec-ognized by the beef indus-try for their devotion to environmental stewardship. The book includes colorful pictures of cattle grazing on these producers’ ranches and easy-to-understand text that ex-plains their grazing man-agement practices through-out the year.
The Mon-tana Grazing Lands Conser-vation Initiative (GLCI) Committee has developed lesson plans about grazing management to complement the book. The committee has purchased over 100 books and is providing them along with the lesson plans to teachers at 124 schools in the state.
The book sells for $16.95. To order, visit the publisher’s Web site: www.boydsmillspress.com.
GLCI is a national effort aimed at providing techni-cal grazing assistance to private landowners.
