Free workshop to prevent livestock loss

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) Wildlife Services (WS) program is co-hosting a free workshop on methods to prevent livestock loss to wildlife for all farmers and ranchers Jan. 17, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. at the Carbon County Fairgrounds, 94 Rodeo Road, Red Lodge, MT. This event will be co-hosted with MSU Carbon County Extension. No registration is necessary.
Producers can expect to learn about the practical use of preventative measures to reduce predation to cattle, sheep, goats, beehives and poultry. This workshop will provide demonstrations on non-lethal methods and the science-based information that goes into developing an integrated plan to manage damage caused by predators.
Presentations will include livestock grouping, local area updates on wolves and grizzly bear activity, community organization, and electric fencing and will feature guest speakers from USDA APHIS WS, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, the Tom Miner Basin Association, and more.
