Project Main Details
In this episode of sharing open spaces with livestock, we’ll discuss what to do if you are hiking and encounter grazing cattle blocking your path.
While exploring California's beautiful parks, you may notice us cows at work grazing. We’re outstanding in our field.
By consuming nearly our weight in plants every month, we manage the mass, height, and cover to give native grasses and wildflowers space to grow.
We also eat plants that may otherwise fuel wildfires.
UC Agriculture and Natural Resources has 4 easy tips for safely sharing open space if you encounter us on the trail.
1. Keep mooo-ving and speak in a normal tone. Sudden moo-vements and loud noises may surprise us cows.
2. Approach us from the side or front. It’s udderly unnerving to have someone sneak up from behind, our blind spot. If one of us appears uncomfortable or moo-dy, step back.
3. 3. Steer clear of getting between a protective mother and her calf. That would be a mistake.
4. 4. If you need to moo-ve around us, step slowly into our flight zone. Invading our “personal space” will motivate us to moo-ve.
My cowleagues and I give birth to calves between August and November. If you see a baby alone, don’t touch or “rescue” her. I may be out of your sight, but I’m probably watching you
UC ANR works with commercial ranchers and park officials to make sure all Californians – both human and bovine -- can enjoy the state’s parks.
