Rangeland workshop set in Sturgis


SDSU Extension Service - May 6, 2019

BROOKINGS, S.D. – With almost 50 percent of the ground in South Dakota classified as rangeland, hands-on field activities that focus on managing range resources should be a part of every landowner’s tool box.

Toward that end, range professionals from SDSU Extension, the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and Natural Resources Conservation Service are hosting a three-day workshop June 4-6, 2019 near Sturgis.

“Our purpose is to educate and enable agencies to work cooperatively with producers and permittees to sustain and regenerate range resources,” said Krista Ehlert, Assistant Professor & SDSU Extension Range Specialist.

The workshop includes case studies and hands-on field activities. The agenda focuses on agencies and how they support and work with producers whose land management practices impact the state’s economy.

“So, management directly impacts rangeland forage productivity and its value for livestock, wildlife and humans,” said Ehlert, whose position is based in the Natural Resource Management Department within the College of Agriculture, Food & Environmental Sciences.

Workshop topics and activities include: Experience working with landowners on private ranches and farms, range plant identification, soils and ecological site training, effective communication, production potential for grazing season, stocking rates and pasture allocation, targeted grazing and overview of the USDA Web Soil Survey and USDA SD Drought Tool
