An economic analysis of forest grazing on four timber management situations. Academic Article uri icon


  • Increasing pressures to find new sources of forage for beef production have stimulated continued exploration into the economic potential for raising beef cattle on forested lands in the South. Four timber management alternatives were evaluated. The analysis indicated variations in the rate of return on investment in the cattle operations from .5 percent for the 30-year, no-thinning alternative to 4.5 percent for the 40-year, with-thinning alternative. -from Authors
