 The Cattle Wintering Sites publication is a joint project of the Alberta Cattle Commission (ACC), Alberta Agriculture and Forestry (AF), Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration (PFRA) and the Alberta Environmentally Sustainable Agriculture (AESA) Program.

It was produced to help cattle producers become more aware of environmental impacts and to provide some tools to managing wintering sites. It provides practical solutions to choosing those management practices that best suit individual land, cattle and operating budgets. Profiles four producers and their successful wintering site management strategies show real-life examples.

Along with information about evaluating and managing wintering sites and environmental stewardship issues, the guide includes a "Site Risk Evaluation Chart", a glossary, references and sources of additional information. Every site is unique so producers will have to develop and apply strategies that best suit their situation.
