Pastures and rangelands are a valuable resource for owners of equine and livestock. Our SDSU Extension team can help you maximize their nutritional value, overall health and longevity by providing research-based best management practices customized to the climate, use and geographical location of your pasture or rangelands.

These grasslands are also home to pollinators and a diverse wildlife population. When landowners invest in their pasture and rangelands, they invest in one of South Dakota’s great resources.
