Pasture management professional development workshops planned in Colorado


Extension forage specialists will host the second of four pasture management professional development workshops Aug. 20 to 23 in Fort Collins, Colo.

Specialists from universities across the West will provide instruction about forage development, agricultural sustainability and the role of scientific research. The course includes classroom and in-field pasture exercises targeted to address the nature of forage and grassland resources.

The workshop is at Colorado State University’s Agricultural Research, Development and Education Center in the Taylor Center Classroom, 4482 E. County Road 56, in Fort Collins. Lunch is provided each day.

“This year’s target is to attract people from Colorado and southeastern Wyoming,” said Anowar Islam, University of Wyoming Extension forage specialist and workshop instructor.

This workshop targets land resource professionals with responsibilities for forages, grazing livestock and pastures. Producers with similar interest are also welcome, as are students, said Islam. Participants will learn the fundamentals of forage plant structure, growth, development, physiology, management, nutritional value and contributions to agricultural sustainability.

The application fee is $100. Application forms are available from Theresa Albright, budget specialist at the University of Idaho, theresae@uidaho.edu, and may be submitted by mail, fax or email.

For more information, contact Islam at 307-766-4151.
