Campbell Creek timber - grazing demonstration : cattle use of regenerating deciduous cutblocks

Description

This project involved the use of ten GPS collars to monitor cattle grazing behaviour and habitat use across a diverse mosaic of forested and non-forested range plant community types including regenerating aspen forest. Cattle use of all native plant community types was secondary to tame forages, including aspen cutblocks. If there are other community types available that are preferred above regenerating deciduous communities cattle are unlikely to use cutblock areas until forage is depleted in the preferred community types, unless cutblocks are in close proximity to preferred communities and/or unless prompted to do so with livestock distribution tools.
