Scientists: Livestock Damage Cascade-Siskiyou Monument

| Debra Agnew | ,

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management was presented Monday with a statement that cattle-grazing should be permanently suspended in on the 52,947 acre monument. A team of scientists had come to this conclusion after examining the effect that grazing had on biodiversity and on the health of the soil. Among other problems, cattle promote the incursion of noxious weeds, alters predator/prey relationships, and damages ryparian areas. KBO’s executive director, John Alexander monitored birds on the monument for the project. The full article can be read on the Medford Mail Tribune’s website.
