Upcoming Workshop: Using Grazing to Manage Wildlife Habitat
Livestock management to enhance wildlife habitat can be economically beneficial for an agricultural producer.
ARDMORE, Okla. — Noble Research Institute will host a Using Grazing to Manage Wildlife Habitat workshop from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29, at Cross Timbers Wildlife Management Area, located at 7761 Stockton Road, Burneyville, Oklahoma.
When managed correctly, native rangelands can produce optimal wildlife habitat and forage production for cattle. When native rangelands are not utilized or are overutilized, both cattle and wildlife suffer.
Attendees will learn:
- About the importance of the five principles of soil health to wildlife habitat
- How to convert introduced forages to native range
- About the process of prescribed fire and grazing, and the importance to maintaining/creating plant diversity structure important to wildlife
- How to use brush control techniques
- How to achieve stocker animal performance on native range for wildlife
Producers who want to have a better understanding of land stewardship principles are encouraged to attend.
Weather-appropriate outdoor attire should be worn. There is no fee for this event, but participants must register online by Oct. 22 to attend. For more information and to register, please visit www.noble.org/events.
