Alternative sheep grazing systems workshop set
Sheep producers will be able to learn about alternative grazing systems at an NDSU Extension Service-sponsored workshop scheduled for Aug. 2.
The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at AL Ranch near Woodworth, N.D. Ranch co-owner Brent Kuss will discuss methods he is trying, including enclosing a 1,200-acre waterfowl production area with temporary electric fencing to form smaller pasture areas, installing underground water lines to deliver water to sheep in pastures and planting radishes and legumes between rows of corn to provide feed for sheep once the corn is harvested.
The cost of the workshop is $25 per person. Transportation will be provided for participants who do not want to drive to the ranch. They will be picked up at the Stutsman County Fairgrounds.
The North Dakota Lamb and Wool Producers Association is co-sponsoring the workshop, which is one of several events scheduled during the North Dakota Lamb and Wool Expo set for Aug. 2-3 at the Stutsman County Fairgrounds.
