UW holds course on drought prep

Jun 11, 2017 From staff reports

Producers taking a free online rangeland drought planning course will exit with a drought plan tailored to their operations, and agency employees completing the course will be able to guide producers in creating a plan.

While the self-paced course is debuting during a wet period, it is never too early to plan for drought conditions, said Ashley Garrelts, University of Wyoming Extension educator who built the course.

The course is divided into six self-guided modules, including an introduction, soils, plants, livestock, management and economics.
