NDSU Extension to host livestock drought outlook webinars
The webinars will provide North Dakota livestock owners with an outlook on drought conditions, forage production and grazing.
Currently, 36% of North Dakota is experiencing some level of drought as drought conditions continue to persist in the western part of the state.
“Drought impacts are at the forefront of many ranchers' minds as we head into the 2022 grazing season,” says Miranda Meehan, North Dakota State University Extension livestock environmental stewardship specialist. “Concerns linger about long-term impacts of the drought on forage production as well as the risk of a continued drought throughout the year.”
NDSU specialists will be hosting live webinars to help livestock producers address drought concerns. The webinars will be held at 1 p.m. CDT on March 31 and April 7.
The webinars will provide North Dakota livestock owners with an outlook on drought conditions, forage production and grazing while providing management options. The webinars will also provide an opportunity for participants to express drought-related concerns.
