About 85% of North Dakota is experiencing some level of drought as we enter 2021, and many ranchers are concerned the drought will extend into the 2021 grazing season. North Dakota State University Extension specialists will host a 6-part live webinar series to assist ranchers as they prepare for drought. The goal is for ND ranchers to learn about different management strategies that will aid them in developing a drought plan for their ranch and give them an opportunity to discuss drought-related concerns. Topics include the drought outlook, drought trigger dates and grazing strategies, supplemental feed and forage options, water supply and quality, herd management and reduction strategies, and managing stress during drought. Participants will be able to ask questions during the webinar, and recordings will be available via NDSU.
This webinar is part 1 of the 6-part series: 2021 Drought Outlook.
