Abstract

Minimizing wolf-livestock conflicts requires identifying conditions placing livestock at risk and focusing adaptive management at a local scale. Gray wolves Canis lupus began recolonizing Washington in 2008. We used generalized linear mixed models to investigate characteristics of wolf pack...

Abstract

Livestock depredation was a primary factor in wolf extirpation from most of the conterminous United States by the 1930s. Through reintroductions and natural dispersals, gray wolves (Canis lupus) have recolonized portions of their former range. Livestock grazing occurs on federal lands in the...

Abstract

Bull expected progeny differences (EPD) and actual performance data were examined along with their auction prices in order to identify the significant impact of different traits on the resulting bull's price, in specific regions of the Pacific Northwest. The objective was to determine the...

Abstract

Prescribed fire has long been used worldwide for livestock and wildlife management. Prescribed fire effects on activity budgets and movement path characteristics of grazing animals, however, remain largely unknown. We evaluated whether prescribed-fire treatments in mesic sage brush steppe affect ...

Abstract

The presence of graywolves (Canis lupus) can directly and indirectly affect beef cattle (Bos taurus) production on rangelands of the Northern Rocky Mountains. While fairly extensive knowledge exists for the direct effects of wolf predation threat (e.g., cattle death and injury losses, elevated...

Abstract

The wildlife of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem carries brucellosis, which was first introduced to the area by cattle in the 19th century. Brucellosis transmission between wildlife and livestock has been difficult to study due to challenges in culturing the causative agent, Brucella abortus. We...
