A Multiple Indictor-Multiple Causation Analysis of Pasture Management and Prescribed Grazing Practices By Beef Cattle Operators

Pasture management and grazing practices affect animal productivity,farm profitability, soil carbon storage and soil and water quality. Poor pasture and grazing management practices can cause soil erosion, nitrogen leaching, and runoff into streams and waterways. This study estimates how farm operator, farming operation, and attitudinal variables influence the propensity to use various pasture and prescribed grazing management practices, as well as their adoption patterns. The results of this study further understanding of pasture and prescribed grazing practice adoption and inform educational and environmental management programs for cattle farmers with grazing lands in the eastern US.
