We thank the ranching families of Shasta and Tehama counties who allowed this study to take place on their lands. We also thank the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection for funding. We appreciate the tremendous support of the late Ron Knight, Livestock Advisor Emeritus in Tehama County, who helped to contact cooperators and assisted with field data collection.
