Abstract
  • The Upper Kiamath Valley and Klamath Marsh areas of south-central Oregon comprise the summer range for a modern system of transhumance agriculture. Approximately 72,000 head of cattle are annually trucked from these relatively small Kiamath pastures to winter pastures scattered throughout the Sacramento Valley. Field research indicates that the development of this system results from characteristics of the physical base and past and present economic conditions. Topography, soils, climate and water supply combine to produce rich pastures in an area otherwise incapable of supporting intensive summer grazing. Economic factors, in particular favorable transportation rates and local production costs, have encouraged the seasonal use of these pastures in a transhumance system. The resulting "beef monoculture" appears stable but may be subject to radical revision should the economic factors change adversely.
