SD Grassland Coalition hosts annual Grazing School in September

The South Dakota Grassland Coalition is hosting the annual South Dakota Grazing School in Chamberlain/Oacoma in September. Two sessions are being offered again this year to accommodate more participants. Class one will take place Sept. 12-14; and class two will be held Sept. 14-16. The Grazing School will convene at the AmericInn in Chamberlain with hands-on field activities taking place on Lower Brule trust land near Oacoma.

The Grazing School provides useful tools to aide grazing land managers in maintaining healthy and diverse ecosystems while optimizing available natural resources. The event agenda features presenters from state and federal agencies, universities, plus local producers who will share their expertise about various topics related to grazing techniques and grassland management. Some of the topics to be discussed include grazing concepts, holistic grazing, balancing rations and animal nutrition.

“We are excited to host the Grazing School again this year – giving our participants an in-depth look at effective and efficient grassland management,” said Kyle Schell, Range Management Outreach Coordinator for South Dakota State University. “The classroom time plus the work in the field allows for networking among producers and presenters, and gives us the opportunity to cover a wide range of topics.”



Space remains available for anyone wishing to participate in the South Dakota Grazing School. The cost to attend is $150 per person, and $75 for each additional person registering from the same operation. The fee includes session materials and meals.

For more information or to register, contact Schell at 605-688-6623 or e-mail him at kyle.schell@sdstate.edu. A downloadable brochure – complete with agenda and registration information can be found online at SDGrass.org.
