The Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) partners with the Sage Grouse Initiative through its Grazing Improvement Program (GIP). The GIP works to improve the productivity, health, and sustainability of our rangelands and watersheds to strengthen Utah’s livestock industry, improve rural economies, and enhance the environment. The program has benefited some 2.5 million acres, utilizing strategies like increasing water availability and using scientific approaches to enhance livestock grazing management. The UDAF administers and helps fund an SGI field staff position in Randolph, Utah.
