"Drought Management Strategies for Beef Cattle Producers," will take place Thursday, Aug. 9 at 9:30 a.m. and will feature MSU Extension beef cattle specialist Rachel Endecott. Endecott will cover forage management, strategies for making the best use of low quality harvested forages, and other drought management strategies such as early weaning and selective culling.
“Ranchers need to take action to mitigate drought impacts,” says Endecott. “This webinar will provide some ideas and options for ranchers to lessen the impacts on their herds and land.”
This webinar is the second of the MSU Extension Fire and Drought Webinar Series. The series is free and open to the public. Sessions will be held each Thursday morning at 9:30 a.m. through Sept.13.
The third session, “Managing Stress During Natural Disasters,” will be hosted by Sandra J. Bailey, PhD, CFLE Family and Human Development Specialist, Montana State University Extension, on Aug. 16 at 9:30 a.m.
