This study is aimed at identifying the obstacles of ranchers` participation in implementing the pastures management plans in Kohgeloyeh Township. This is applied study. The methodology of this research is non experimental (descriptive) and correlation and it has been done in 2011. A questionnaire, as the main study tool was designed. The statistical population of the study was 197 ranchers working in Kohgeloyeh of which 110 persons were selected by simple random sampling. Results showed that the lack of participation of the studied person’s majority was in moderate level. Prioritizing the items of ranchers nonparticipation based on the mean statistic showed that averages of 4.57, 4.39, and 4.21 includes nonparticipation of ranchers in seeding, sowing, and water piping, respectively. Also findings indicated that educational and social factors have determined about 54% the lack of participation of ranchers. Removing educational and social obstacles would increase the level of rancher’s participation.
