Grazing Lands Biology Workshop is Jan. 9-11
A workshop on the ways to manage grazing lands effectively will be held Jan. 9-11, 2019, at the North Dakota State University Dickinson Research Extension Center (DREC).
The workshop will be conducted at the DREC’s Red Office Building on the corner of State Avenue and Empire Road in Dickinson, N.D. The workshop will run each day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mountain time.
“Livestock producers have improved the genetic performance of North America’s beef herd but have not simultaneously improved the technology of traditional pasture and harvested forage management,” says Lee Manske, research professor at the DREC and workshop instructor. “Modern beef animals do not produce at their genetic potential on forage managed by old-style practices.”
For 66 years, range scientists at the DREC have researched the development of biologically effective forage management practices for modern beef cattle. The resulting work will be presented at the workshop.
