Reducing grasshopper infestation using animal impact

Joel Herrmann herded cattle for Joe Black and Sons out of Bruneau, Idaho, for eight years. In 1995-96, on a BLM winter range southeast of the Bruneau Sand Dunes, Joel was operating with a holistic goal that he had written, and a biological grazing plan that he worked with on a computer. The plan was carried out by herding, control of water points, and some fencing. During this time Joel did a fair amount of photographic monitoring, as well as several monitoring transects.
