RangeFlash - June 19, 2014

SRM's June Issue of Stewardship is Now Available


Now is the time to "click" on the link to the latest issue of Stewardship. This issue is relatively short and you can read it in just a few minutes. You won't be sorry that you did!

If you are like a lot of our younger members you carry a small "smart phone" or other form of electronic communication with internet access so you can access Stewardship from about anywhere and show your friends what they are missing!

Enjoy and spread the word!

Targeted Grazing Online Workshops 2014 - Grazing with a Goal


Third Thursday of the month in 2014 - 11:30 PT/12:30 MT/1:30 CT/2:30 ET


Learn the principles of targeted grazing to manage landscape.  Online presentations and discussion will be by the experts in the topic of targeted grazing and made possible by the Targeted Grazing Committee of the Society for Range Management.  All you need is a computer and good internet connection.  


CLICK HERE For a list of upcoming webinars on the Targeted Grazing Committee page.    

Range Photo Quiz

Successful rangeland operations critically depend upon ample forage and adequate drinking water for livestock and wildlife.  While forage production is largely subject to the seeming whims of Mother Nature (though certainly also at the seeming whims - for better or worse - of managers), human ingenuity has developed technologies to get water to places where it had not often before.  Inventive infrastructure tends, however, to inevitably weaken and decay with age, and - as shown here - can catastrophically fail when we least expect it; such as in the middle of a hot, high water-demand period.


What cost-effective fix would you suggest to the manager who discovered one morning that this 12,000 gallon storage tank had a rusted-out bottom? (We'll show you the "cowboy fix" employed next time!)

vtrujillo@rangelands.org, subject line "Range Photo Quiz" or complete the Range Quiz form. Be sure to include a question and answer with the photo!
