CSU Extension, Colorado Cattleman's Association, Delta County Livestock Association and Mesa County Cattlemen join forces to host a workshop, "Surviving Drought: A Workshop For Ranchers on the West Slope and Beyond." Extreme drought conditions in 2018 require ranchers and livestock owners to make difficult and stressful decisions regarding their operation, land and livestock. This workshop offers information, strategies and support for ranchers and livestock producers of all sizes who are dealing with drought and its effects.

Join neighbors and beyond for a meal in Delta (lunch) or Loma (dinner) on Aug. 21 and learn how to cope with the ongoing situation. Meal is free with RSVP by Aug. 16 to Retta Bruegger -- retta.bruegger@colostate.edu or online: http://rangemanagement.extension.colostate.edu/surviving-drought-a-workshop-for-ranchers-on-the-west-slope-and-beyond/.

Topics will include decision support tools you can use with challenging decisions such as buying hay or selling cows, cost-effective supplementation and de-stocking strategies, wildfire preparedness and disaster assistance programs.

The workshop in Delta runs from noon to 3 p.m. at Bill Heddles Recreation Center, 531 Palmer Street.
