Zoom Webinar

Livestock producers, especially in semi-arid areas, often have to deal with a high interannual forage production variability caused by fluctuations in precipitation and by drought. There are certain management strategies that livestock producers can utilize to mitigate losses connected to drought. These include, for example, the use of flexible stocking, buying additional feed, or relocating livestock to different pastures. However, there is uncertainty connected to these decisions: When is the right time to implement these? How much forage will there be if it continues to be dry? What are the conditions elsewhere?
