WHEN: August 31st | 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

WHERE: 2154 69th Ave. SE, Pingree, ND 58476

 

Join Audubon Dakota for a pasture walk on a controlled burn conducted in April 2021. Learn more about prescribed fire on private land. Topics discussed include how fires impact forage production; cattle gains; speakers will address fire planning in a drought year; and pasture resilience. Additionally, we will discuss the ecological impacts of prescribed fire regarding wildlife habitat and invasive species (smooth brome, Kentucky bluegrass, and woody encroachment).

 

Presenters, Kevin Sedivec, NDSU Range Science and Central Grassland Research Extension; Cody Grewing, Audubon Dakota; Austin Lang, Pheasants Forever; and rancher Liz Smith, will discuss the many benefits and opportunities for prescribed fires in a pasture setting.
