Attendees will leave with a completed grazing management plan.

The North Dakota State University Extension Service’s 2015 Range Management School for livestock producers will be held Sept. 9-11 at the North Dakota 4-H Camp near Washburn.

This event will focus on the principles of range management and how to incorporate them into livestock operations.

The three-day school will include ranch tours, presentations from livestock producers, and sessions on soil and ecological sites, plant identification, proper stocking rate, grazing management, infiltration and range improvements. At the end of the school, producers will have a completed grazing management plan they can incorporate into their operations.

The registration fee is $150 for the first person and $75 for each additional person in the same operation if paid by Aug. 27. After that, the fee is $200 for the first person and $100 for each additional person. Registration is limited to 20 operations. Meals and lodging are included in the registration fee, and camper hookups are available.
