In Part 1 of our series on what to do about predators, we focused on thinking outside-the-box about predators and their place in our landscapes so that we could better work with nature instead of against her. This week we have examples of how others graziers have approached the problem of protecting their livestock. I hope they give you ideas you can adapt to your own operation.

The Livestock-Predator Hub of the University of California-Davis has looked at the available research to find out what works best in different situations. I added information on how some of these practices can work.
