CSU hosts grazing management workshop

Grand and Jackson County Extension Offices will be hosting a workshop on grazing management and economic impact of management decisions on Dec. 3. The workshop is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. at the Extension Hall on the fairgrounds in Kremmling. The first hour will be dedicated to evaluating a range site and using the site and transition model to make decision on grazing sites. Discussion will be centered on management practices for livestock as well as wildlife.

After a lunch that will be provided, the focus will be more on economic impacts of grazing management decisions. Participants will be able to run through a computer simulator that gives different grazing and weather scenarios to make decisions about stocking rates. After the decisions are made, the computer will figure the economic outcome of the decisions. There will be Ag Economist from CSU on hand to discuss the principles used by the simulator.

RSVP to the Grand County Extension Office by November 27, 2013 at 970-724-3436.
