NMSU workshop to focus on management of cattle grazing on public lands


New Mexico State University is having a free workshop, June 25, to address a wide variety of issues faced by ranchers using public lands.

The workshop will be held at the Southwest Center for Rangeland Sustainability. Visit the center’s website at http://coronasc.nmsu.edu/ for directions to the facility.

The discussion will center around managing where cattle graze on public lands, dealing with the drought and understanding enhancement of ecosystem services.

“We hope to provide some practical tools to manage grazing distribution, both new and proven techniques, and how to conduct planning sessions to resolve grazing issues,” said Derek Bailey director of NMSU’s Chihuahuan Desert Rangeland Research Center and professor in range science.

“Livestock distribution is one of the major tenets of grazing management, and manipulation of distribution has the potential to greatly enhance productivity and sustainability of rangeland cattle distributions,” Bailey said. “For example, enhancing distribution can provide ranchers additional forage during droughts.”

Joining Bailey as presenters will be Larry Howery, professor and Extension rangeland specialist at the University of Arizona; Allen Torell, NMSU professor of agricultural economics; and Mitch Stephenson, NMSU doctorial student in range science.

Pre-registration is not required to attend the workshops. The program will be from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided.

For more information contact Bailey at 575-646-2554 or dwbailey@nmsu.edu.
