RANGELAND MOVES WEST

Scientists say the line which divides the arid Western regions of the U.S. from the humid Eastern regions is shifting, causing big changes in traditional agriculture pursuits. As the line moves further east, so too is cropland turning to rangeland and corn, soybean and wheat farmers turning to cattle ranchers. “It’s just a steady progression over the last 30-something years,” said Richard Seager, a climate scientist and professor at Columbia University.
