Grazing Workshop to be Held

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

A grazing workshop entitled "Survival Tools for Today's Ranch: Innovative Ideas for Ranching in the 21st Century" is planned for Dec. 13 in Moab.

The purpose of this workshop is to present proven ideas in livestock grazing management that will offer a brighter future for public and private lands ranching in the West. These ideas include planned grazing, herding, grassbanks, monitoring, low-stress livestock handling, building collaborations (between ranchers, agencies and others), and holistic management (poop-and-stomps). An optional follow-up discussion will be held Dec.14 from 8 a.m. to noon to talk and ask questions about "Where do we go from here" for anyone interested.

The organizers of this workshop are representatives of Carbon, Emery, Grand and San Juan counties. This organization, known as the Utah Range Coalition is made up of a broad base of community interests whose main purpose is to keep grazing as a viable option.

The workshop will be held at the Red Cliffs Lodge along the Colorado River on Highway 128 near Moab. No matter what type of animal you graze, this workshop will be helpful to you. For more information and to receive a registration flyer, please contact Gayla at (435) 697-2986 or Roger and Shelley Barton at (435) 384-2397.
