Range and Pasture Land

In Latah County
  • About 196,000 acres of grazing land is found in Latah County.  About five percent of the agricultural income in the county is from the sale of livestock products.

  • Nearly 15,000 acres is referred to as rangeland, while 181,000 acres is grazable wood land.

  • Rangeland is found primarily on the south-facing slopes in the canyons adjacent to the lower portions of the Potlatch River and its tributaries.

  • The natural vegetation on much of the rangeland of Latah County has been largely depleted by continuous heavy use early in spring since the 1880’s.

  • Much of the original bluebunch wheatgrass and Idaho fescue has been replaced by annual brome grasses and sod-forming bluegrass.
