Livestock Foraging Models: Rangeland Management on Santa Ana Pueblo
Track: Tribal/Indigenous GIS Programs
Authors: Raul Campos-Marquetti
Using the ArcMap and ERDAS software a Grazing Production Model was created. Using these results, the total number of Cow/Calf units that can be grazed on a pasture was determined. The generated Geodatabase will be used by the pueblo to plan and implement livestock management decisions, maintain the integrity and health of the Pueblo’s rangeland pastures, and to avoid overgrazing practices and in the management of forage and water sources made available for co-existing indigenous wildlife.
