Range use plans (RUPs), required for all Range Act agreements on Crown range, were changed substantially in 2003. Many plans will now have references to range readiness criteria, average stubble heights, and browse utilization. This brochure discusses the concept of range readiness and the use of criteria to indicate appropriate grazing times. Assessing the leaf development of common grasses is recommended as the most useful indicator of range readiness.
