Pasture Land

Pasture Land
Pastureland is land used for grazing of livestock as part of a farm or ranch. It can be irrigated pastures, meadows and forest openings, and upland range on the plains and prairies. Pasture land is also used by wild animals for grazing or browsing. Pasture growth may consist of grasses, legumes, other forbs, shrubs, or any mixture of those.
Grazing is common in the vegetated uplands in New Mexico, especially in the more arid areas where the land is unsuitable for any other agricultural production. Soil type, terrain, minimum annual temperature, and the amount and timing of rainfall are important considerations in pasture and range management.
