The US is one of the five with the most significant wildfire seasons as measured by a total acres burned. Addressing the reduction of wildfire fuels is to change the fire behavior by impacting the fuel bed, depth, fuel loading, percent cover and ladder fuels that result in a fire flame less than four feet high. In fuel management, grazing is the most effective method at treating smaller diameter vegetation. Grazing animals can impact the amount and arrangement of these fuels through consumption and trampling. Animals are most effective at treating smaller-sized live fuels, fuels that influence an important part of fire behavior by providing flammable materials as well as effective in distinguishing between plant that differ in digestible energy or nutrients. Grazing has a more varied outcome than the mechanical fuel reduction treatments. If these treatment is perfected into a fully understood tool and enough knowledge of the nutrient status of plants will lead of optimum utilization of grazing as a fire fuel reduction tool.
