About Texas Grazing Land Coalition

The Texas Grazing Land Coalition (TXGLC) officially organized in 1994 with forty organizations supporting the goals and mission of TXGLC. These charter members are commonly referred to as the “Founding Forty”.  The TXGLC is a member of the National Grazing Lands Coaltion (Nat GLC).  TXGLC works with many partnerships sharing this mission.

TXGLC is organized to support sound grazing land stewardship and assist owners and managers of private grazing lands.  Expert technical assistance is available to implement, on a voluntary basis, technologies for conservation management of the private grazing lands and other natural renewable resources of Texas.  Texas is a very ecologically diverse state, with precipitation zones ranging from 50 inches/year in east Texas to less than 10 inches/year in west Texas.  Grazing land includes rangeland and pasture land, which totals over 110 million acres, nearly 65% of Texas.  What happens on that land impacts all Texans!

TXGLC provides educational opportunities for many groups, including wildlife and livestock organizations and schools.  We collaborate and cooperate with our partners to provide meaningful information to land stewards and others.  Call or email for more information!  Follow us on facebook!

Texas Grazing Land Coalition

Coastal Prairie GLC members assisted in putting prescribed fire on the landscape yesterday at the Welder Wildlife Foundation. Sometimes we blaze then graze!Yesterday afternoon the Welder Foundation conducted a prescribed burn on the Welder Wildlife Refuge. Many of you saw our smoke and/or the KRIS news report of the burn on the 6:00 pm news, so we wanted to fill you in on what was going on.
Prescribed fire is a safe and effective restoration tool if used properly. As part of a research project supported by the Welder Foundation, we burned about 340 acres in an effort to remove invasive brush and continue to restore the pasture as closely as possible to the native prairie habitat critical for wildlife and livestock.
Our team was composed of a number of highly trained and experienced professionals with a long history of conducting prescribed fires. Our local fire marshall approved our burn plan and was on site to monitor the fire. The burn was executed as planned and completed in less than 2 hours. We are happy to report it was a very successful effort. Follow us for more information on the effects of the burn.
