Livestock often are attracted to riparian systems for the availability of forage and water, shade and smooth terrain. Riparian ecosystems are extremely productive, with some providing 81 percent of the summer forage utilized by grazing livestock (Roath and Krueger 1982). Changes in riparian vegetation induced by grazing can result in a decline in soil health, loss of biotic diversity, degradation of wildlife habitat, reduced water quality and alterations in stream hydrology. This publication covers grazing systems.
More than 20 riverine systems occur in North Dakota, with four major rivers. These rivers are the Missouri, James, Souris and Red rivers. The Sheyenne River is the longest tributary of the Red River of the North, and the Little Missouri is the longest tributary of the Missouri River. These tributaries and associated riparian ecosystems play an important role in the maintenance of water quality within the primary basin.
