The challenges associated with managing fire in chaparral have created an opportunity for small ruminants (sheep and goats) to play an important
role in ongoing fuel reduction. While targeted
grazing or browsing of chaparral plants cannot completely
eliminate wildfire danger, it is a practical
method for managing vegetation, particularly after
another method has been used to remove large,
woody stems. The information in this publication can help
guide managers through some of the nutritional challenges
related to targeted grazing for fire-fuel reduction
in California chaparral.
