This is an aggregate dataset for the DRECP 12 km buffer region, depicting the geographic boundaries of Grazing Allotments within BLM managed public lands. An allotment is an area of land designated and managed for grazing of livestock (43 CFR 4100.0-5). An allotment may include private, state, and public lands under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management and/or other federal agencies. An allotment may be subdivided into pastures. Range improvement projects are not depicted within this dataset.
Lands within the watersheds of the Great Plains streams that are not used for crops are often used for cattle grazing and hay production. Northern Plains States are one of the nation’s top producers of cattle, which outnumber people almost three to one in North Dakota. Cattle can have direct habitat impacts by trampling stream banks, which destroys beneficial vegetation and increases sedimentation and nutrient loads. Hofmann and Ries (1991) found that livestock increased sediment runoff in North Dakota streams. Schepers and Francis (1982) reported that runoff from a Nebraska cattle farm increased total phosphorus levels in runoff by 37%. In addition, cattle watering ponds, often constructed by diverting streams,...
This database contains literature citations and associated summaries pertaining to livestock grazing effects on amphibians and their habitats, with an emphasis on the Oregon spotted frog (Rana pretiosa) and other listed/sensitive wetland-breeding amphibians in the western United States. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list, nor did we perform a systematic meta-analysis; rather, literature records were included based on topical relevance. *HINT: If you are looking for the database SEARCH TOOL, scroll down to 'Attached Files' and download 'Annotated_bibliography_with_search_tool.accdb.'

A consolidated grazing dataset representing BLM and FS submissions, with ownership indicated in the 'Mngmnt' field. Overlaps are identified as "BLMFS". BLM - GSSP allotments and pastures merged, overlaps removed, and dissolved to one polygon. GSSP SNAPSHOT of Approved data set made on 5/14/12 for the Greater Sage-grouse baseline rangewide cumulative effects analysis. This aggregate national dataset identifies allotments within BLM managed public lands. FS - This allotment layer is a merged and dissolved representation of the 27 allotment data files submitted to the BLM by the USFS for the GRSG CEA. As needed, records with ‘Unit_Type’ = 1 were selected for the merge, while the remainder were omitted. Additionally,...

Application of nitrogen generated by non-cattle livestock to pasture land in the United States Pacific Northwest for 2002
This spatial data set was created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to represent the amount of nitrogen generated by pastured, non-cattle livestock that was applied to pasture land in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States (Hydro Region 17; Major River Basin 7 (MRB7)) during 2002.
