Florida Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative
The Grazing Land Conservation Initiative (GLCI) is a producer-led effort to enhance the management and health of private grazing lands. NRCS provides financial and technical assistance to landowners to support improved management of Florida’s grazing land resources. In addition, the GLCI works to develop strategies to address new resource concerns and remove barriers to assist Florida’s grazing lands stewards achieve their management and natural resource conservation goals. This initiative has helped producers apply new technology to improve livestock production efficiency while maintaining or improving their natural resources.
The cattle industry can be traced back to early Florida exploration in the 1520s.
