Ranchers depend on forage from rain-fed rangelands to support their livestock herds, thus are among the first agriculture to be impacted by drought. The goal of this project is to follow-up on previous survey and interview efforts to better understand ongoing ranch impacts, management strategies, and planning horizons relative to the current severe drought (2012-2015).
