South Dakota: IRM meetings rescheduled for January
BROOKINGS, SD – A series of Extension Integrated Resource Management (IRM) courses for beef cattle producers have been postponed until January.
The South Dakota Cooperative Extension Service will host the training, and Extension Beef Specialist Ken Olson said many producers are still finishing fieldwork.
“The late fall means field work continues and producers need time to focus on that before we start typical winter educational programs,” said Olson.
The new start dates for the programs are Jan. 18 in Bison, SD, Jan. 19 in Sturgis, SD and Jan. 20 in Wall, SD. For more information or to register, call Extension Range Livestock Associate Mindy Hubert or Extension Beef Specialist Ken Olson at the SDSU West River Ag Center at 605-394-2236.
Or you can call Extension Livestock Educator Robin Salverson in Harding County at 605-375-3412; Extension Livestock Educator Penny Nester in Meade County at 605-347-2436; or Extension Livestock Educator Adele Harty in Haakon County at 605-859-2840.
Many livestock producers are utilizing stockpiled pasture, hay regrowth and warm- or cool-season annuals to extend the grazing season this fall.
