Forage production potential is high, especially on community pastures, but the grazing period is generally only 4–5 mo. Management of livestock and forage on Crown range in British Columbia may be more complex than in other regions of Canada because of the diversity of vegetation and climate and the extensive overlap of range use with other Cited by: In western Canada, both grassland and forested range are significant. In British Columbia, 70 percent of grassland range is privately owned and 60 percent of the total annual livestock forage requirement is provided by grazing on Crown rangeland (34 million hectares), 80 percent of which is forested range.

Working Paper . in British Columbia, and many bands continue to use grasslands for ranching, hunting, and other traditional purposes. Grasslands play a critical role in BC’s ranching industry. Grasslands serve as a forage base for grazing cattle and sheep as well as providing space and water resources. Healthy grasslands are necessary.

grass rangelands used for livestock are in the four western provinces with British Columbia accounting for ~36%, Alberta with ~29%, ~24% in Saskatchewan and ~8% in Manitoba. These grasslands vary from region to region and even property to property in terms of forage productivity. As a result, livestock grazing programs must be adapted for. BRITISH COLUMBIA SPECIFIC REGULATIONS FOR. BEEF PROJECT. 1. The Beef Project includes: Unit 1 - The Beginner Beefperson. This project is designed for the 4-H member who does not presently own a beef animal, but who wishes to learn more about the project while participating as an active member of the club. The forage resource used for livestock grazing and production of forage crops covers over 36 million ha of Canada's land base (%) (Horton, ). This compares to 25 million ha in grain and oilseed crops. This is divided into 72% native range (26 million ha), 11% cultivated pastures (4 million ha) and 17% forage crops (6 million ha) (Table 1). Province-wide, and in the Columbia Basin, Crown land accounts for about 60% of livestock forage, and private land the other 40%. Ponderosa pine (PP) and mid-elevation Interior Douglas-Fir (IDF) zones can be extremely productive for forage, and Englemann spruce-subalpine fir (ESSF) less so (graph at left).
