Creating a Drought Resilient Farm or Ranch with Jim Gerrish from American Grazing Lands
February 21 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm UTC-6
Drought resiliency is created by conscientiously managing for a functional water cycle. This requires leaving appropriate post-grazing residual after every grazing event, creating and maintaining a litter layer on the soil surface, and building soil organic matter and biological life. Join Jim as he discusses key management strategies to create drought resilience that include:
1) Matching stocking rate to carrying capacity seasonally and annually.
2) Balancing use and recovery periods.
3) Having a proactive drought response plan that includes destocking triggers.
