Description: Red Angus cross cattle graze native rangelands in eastern North Dakota. Native rangelands provide an important forage resource for cattle production in North America. The rangelands in this photo are comprised of mainly cool season grass species. Many rangelands are unsuitable for more intensively managed agricultural production systems e.g. crop production because of their topography, soil type or depth, or fertility. However, ruminants can produce high quality protein from these forages.
