Theresa Becchetti - Livestock and Natural Resources

Thanks to a Renewable Resources Extension Act grant, we have created a site with all of the publications UC has regarding livestock, rangelands, pastures, weeds, etc.  Please take a minute to see the wealth of info waiting for you.  The majority of the papers available are free downloads, and a link will take you to purchase the few that are not free.  Each paper has a small summary for your convenience.  This site will continue to grow as well, so please bookmark it and come back often!

The Livestock and Natural Resource Management Program focuses on efforts to keep range livestock and the rangeland itself healthy and productive.  Research ranges from invasive plants, water quality, ecosystem services, rangeland education for schools, and niche marketing. 

Livestock Advisor, Theresa Becchetti, has a cross-county appointment for San Joaquin County as well. 

2019 Rangeland Summit

The 2019 Rangeland Summit was held at the Stockton Ag Center, January 15th.  For anyone who missed the Summit, or for those that would like to see any of the presentations again, the slides can all be found here.  For more information about the California Rangeland Conservation Coalition, please see their website here
