Rangelands:

Rangelands are broken down into three categories based on the extent of their population density. These are the Residential Rangeland, Populated Rangeland, and Remote Rangeland. These areas serve mainly for livestock such as cattle to graze. 40 million square kilometers of ice-free land make up the rangelands with approximately 300 million people living there.
