NMSU Corona Rancher's Roundtable May 21 to focus on wildlife management

New Mexico State University is having a free Rancher’s Roundtable in Corona May 21 to help producers address the importance of wildlife management and brush control for wildlife and livestock.

The roundtable will be held at the Southwest Center for Rangeland Sustainability.

“Wildlife management is important to the livelihood of today’s land manager,” said Shad Cox, ranch manager of the Corona Range and Livestock Research Center. “Reduced income due to drought conditions has made managing wildlife for income diversification a very important component to land management whether through harvest or agro-tourism opportunities.

“Brush control is a very important tool in keeping our rangeland and watersheds healthy and productive for wildlife and livestock.”

The panel members at the roundtable are Greg Alperts, Dow Agrosciences senior sales representative in Roswell; Cal Baca, New Mexico Game and Fish, Wildlife Management Division chief in Santa Fe; Kirk McDaniel, NMSU Extension range management specialist; Brent Racher, Racher Resource Management in Corona; Sam Smallidge, NMSU Extension wildlife specialist; and John Tunberg, Natural Resource Conservation Service state range management specialist in Albuquerque. Eric Scholljegerdes, NMSU range ruminant nutritionist, will moderate the event.

Registration is not required to attend the workshops. The May roundtable is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Lunch will be provided. Attendees are welcome to stay as long as needed to get their questions answered.

For more information on this or other roundtable seminars, contact Cox at 575-849-1015 or visit http://coronasc.nmsu.edu/ for more information and to download a map to the center.
