• A: The legal definition varies from state to state, but in general “open range” means that livestock, such as cows, horses, sheep, may graze beyond property boundaries--including onto the road and onto your property. Drivers need to be especially careful; in some areas, if a vehicle hits livestock, the driver is liable for the cost of the animal. In several western states, if you don’t want livestock trespassing onto your land, it is your responsibility to build a fence to keep them out. To allow the area’s wildlife to move freely to escape predators, forage for food, and find a mate, wildlife-friendly fencing is recommended. To find out if your property is in open range, check with your county planning department.
