Drought Resources and Adaption Strategies for Ranchers Workshops June 15, 2021 Sierra Valley - 6:00-8:00 pm - Sierraville School June 16, 2021 Indian Valley - 6:00-8:00 pm - Rock Club Taylorsville
Ranchers are facing unprecedent drought conditions with limited forage growth, stock ponds never filling and streams never running. These workshops are a chance to learn more about UC Cooperative Extension resources, meet the new local NRCS staff and hear about programs that can help you during drought, and connect with FSA on financial programs with the local staff and district director. The workshops are free of charge, but please register so there will be enough printed materials and light refreshments for all attendees. The link to register and workshop agenda are posted below.
