Abstract: Cattle producers' risk ensuing from uncertain environmental conditions was quantified using a stochastic simulation model. The ability of three grazing strategies (yearlong continuous, deferred rotational, and rotational) to increase the success and survivability of ranches were evaluated. Results indicated the traditional yearlong continuous strategy was most desirable for ranchers in all risk aversion categories.
