Description: A trial of rest-rotation grazing was started in 1954 on the Harvey Valley allotment of the Lassen National Forest, northern California. This paper evaluates progress observed to 1966. Ecologically the program is considered sound. And after only a decade, the allotment was in better condition than allotments grazed season-long. Cattle weight gains were acceptable, and as good as could be expected from the surrounding area. In terms of short-term monetary cost in relation to returns, rest-rotation grazing cost the Forest Service 28 percent and the livestock permittee 9 percent more than did season-long grazing.

Keywords: range management, rest-rotation grazing, environmental impact, economic evaluation, Harvey Valley, California
