ABSTRACT: Controlling agricultural nonpoint source pollution from livestock grazing is a necessary step to improving the water quality of the nation's streams. The goal of enhanced stream water quality will most likely result from the implementation of an integrated system of best management practices (BMPs) linked with stream hydraulic and geomorphic characteristics. However, a grazing BMP system is often developed with the concept that BMPs will function independently from interactions among… 

Management Scale Assessment of Practices to Mitigate Cattle Microbial Water Quality Impairments of Coastal Waters

Coastal areas support multiple important resource uses including recreation, aquaculture, and agriculture. Unmanaged cattle access to stream corridors in grazed coastal watersheds can contaminate

Assessing the Effectiveness of Water Quality Best Management Practices for Grazing-Lands

TLDR
The alternative water BMP did not reduce the amount of time cattle spent within the riparian zone; however, the study was limited to one trial and preliminary rip-rap trials showed 20 to 40 cm diameter ripping was effective at modifying cattle trough preference.

Detecting the Influence of Best Management Practices on Vegetation Near Ephemeral Streams With Landsat Data

Abstract Various best management practices (BMPs) have been implemented on rangelands with the goals of controlling nonpoint source pollution, reducing the impact of livestock in ecologically

A Review of Studies Documenting the Effects of Agricultural Best Management Practices on Physiochemical and Biological Measures of Stream Ecosystem Integrity

ABSTRACT: After decades of efforts by the agricultural and scientific communities to manage the impacts of farming through Best Management Practice (BMP) implementation, there is a need to

The Environmental Impact of Cattle Access to Watercourses: A Review.

TLDR
A greater understanding of the impact of cattle access on watercourses under varying conditions will help inform policymakers on the cost effectiveness of existing management criteria and will help in revising existing measures.

Assessment of Stream Water Quality in Tropical Grassland using Water Quality Index

Water quality is a serious issue in tropical grasslands that must be addressed to ensure the continuity and sustainability of water resources. This study aimed to assess the stream water quality of

The role of riparian buffer management in reducing off-site impacts from grazed dairy systems

Abstract Agriculture in general and intensive animal production in particular can degrade the environment, especially as a consequence of the overuse of nutrients. Intensively grazed dairy systems,

Cattle use of off-stream water developments across a northeastern Oregon landscape

Water developments have been considered a fundamental tool for dispersing livestock and reducing livestock impact on riparian and aquatic habitats associated with perennial streams. Quantifying the

Landscape variables affecting livestock impacts on water quality in the humid temperate zone

TLDR
Applied and scholarly evidence suggest that unrestricted livestock access accounts for a relatively modest share of watercourse pollution in humid temperate regions, as compared with such watershed-specific factors as leaking septic tanks and confinement feeding systems.

OFF-STREAM WATER SOURCES FOR GRAZING CATTLE AS A STREAM BANK STABILIZATION AND WATER QUALITY BMP

A multi-disciplinary study was conducted to evaluate effectiveness of providing cattle with an off-stream water source (i.e., water trough) in reducing stream bank erosion and fostering water

Assessing the effect of management intensive grazing on water quality in the northeast U.S.

ABSTRACT: Stocking rate is the key, determining effect of management intensive grazing on dairy farm profitability. However, increased stocking rate can increase NO3 leaching from pastures.

STREAM QUALITY IMPACTS OF BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN A NORTHWESTERN ARKANSAS BASIN

: A variety of management options are used to minimize losses of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and other potential pollutants from agricultural source areas. There is little information available,

EFFECT OF BMP IMPLEMENTATION ON STORM FLOW QUALITY OF TWO NORTHWESTERN ARKANSAS STREAMS

The effectiveness of management practices in improving quality of runoff from agricultural land areas has been reported based primarily on results from plot- and field-scale studies. There is

SURVEY OF LIVESTOCK INFLUENCES ON STREAM AND RIPARIAN ECOSYSTEMS IN THE WESTERN UNITED STATES

ABSTRACT: This paper summarizes the major effects of livestock grazing on stream and riparian ecosystems in the arid West. The study focused primarily on results from peer-reviewed experimental

ANIMALWASTE BMP IMPACTS ON SEDIMENT AND NUTRIENT LOSSES IN RUNOFF FROM THE OWL RUN WATERSHED

The results of the 10-year study conducted in the Owl Run watershed clearly indicate the beneficial impacts of the best management practices (BMPs) on the surface water quality. The main objective

Will a water trough reduce the amount of time hay-fed livestock spend in the stream (and therefore improve water quality)?

Background The impact of grazing cattle on water quality is of considerable importance to water planning agencies. Many people are concerned over health implications of grazing cattle along Western
