BROOKINGS – SDSU Extension, South Dakota Grassland Coalition and partner organizations are once again hosting the 2013 South Dakota Grazing School Sept. 10 to 12 in Chamberlain.
The 2013 School will be held at the AmericInn in Chamberlain.
“This hands on, interactive class provides ranchers and grassland managers with an opportunity to learn basic and advanced tools and techniques for managing their grazing systems,” said Judge Jessop, Coordinator for the South Dakota Grassland Coalition. “It’s a school for anyone interested in improving their ranch or grassland management through the use of various grazing systems and monitoring methods.”
Topics covered during this year’s school will include; grassland health, grassland species, stocking rates, various grazing systems, water and rainfall management and livestock considerations. Attendees will also be provided with a tool kit in order to implement the monitoring and management strategies they’ve learned back on their home ranch or management area.
“Attending this school is a great learning opportunity,” said Pete Bauman, SDSU Extension Range Field Specialist. “Regardless of whether you are a rancher, a grassland manager, or an agency employee who works with producers, you and your business will benefit from this experience.”
Registration for the 2013 SD Grazing School is $150 per person with an option of $75 registration for any additional members from the same ranch operation.
