Increasing Red Meat from Rangeland through Improved Range Management PracticesBox, T. W. (Society for Range Management, 1974-09-01)The demand for red meat will likely increase, not because of an increase in per capita meat consumption but from a consuming population increase. Increased demand for land for non-livestock purposes will cause an intensification of management on rangelands and a gradual decline in feedlot beef. A shift to non-beef sources of red meat may be anticipated. Increasing meat production from rangelands will require careful application of science and the development of new and innovative management systems.
