Livestock grazing has a long history in British Columbia dating back to the 1860s. On Crown range, grazing is authorized under the Range Act and regulated by the Forest and Range Practices Act (FRPA). In much of British Columbia, livestock are everywhere on the landscape and have a legal right to be there. British Columbia is unique in the relatively small percentage of land that is privately owned. This means that access to provincial Crown land is necessary for both the beef cattle and forest industries and also for recreationists.
