Dr. Hendrickson earned his Ph.D. from Texas A&M University with research that focused on plant response to grazing. His current research applies his knowledge of plant response to disturbance to advance principles of integrated systems, rangeland restoration, and management strategies for sustainably of agroecosystems in the Northern Great Plains.

Targeted Grazing Workshops Completed in Spring 2015:

  • Why Targeted Grazing? by Dr. John Walker, Texas A & M University
  • Plant Ecology & Response to Grazing by Dr. John Hendrickson, ARS Northern Great Plains Research Laboratory
  • Diet Selection Basics by Dr. Karen Launchbaugh, University of Idaho
  • Choosing and Developing the Animal for the Job by Dr. Rachel Frost, Missouri River Conservation Districts Council
  • Monitoring for Success by Dr. Marc Horney, California Polytechnic State University – San Luis Obispo

      These workshops were presented by the Targeted Grazing Committee of the Society for Range Management to provide valuable information and initiate a dialogue on ways to apply targeted grazing to accomplish landscape management goals. For More Details about Targeted Grazing please visit

      Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for SRM Certified Professionals in Rangeland Management are available upon request and completion. To verify your participation in the workshop and gain CEUs, you will need to complete the participation form posted at:
