Padres Mesa Demonstration Ranch crew produce a biannual range report for the New Lands range units as well has the Padres. The crew gather forage in each pasture at locations that are a distance from livestock's water sources. A metal ring is then tossed by hand a set number of times; the forage within the ring is cut using scissors and placed in a bag for later weighing.

These range reports are a tool to help ranchers determine their lands carrying capacity. Please see the attached document.
