Fencing/Fladry – Pathways to Implementation

September 20, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm MDT

CIG Webinar Square Series Featured-1

There are emerging opportunities for technical and financial assistance through Farm Bill programs to support producers in the implementation of range riding, carcass management, and various types of electric fencing/fladry. To help producers better plan for and access these tools, the Conflict on Workinglands CIG team is hosting three webinars this summer/fall to share practical information with ranchers and NRCS staff for managing predation and production risks of large carnivores.

This webinar will focus on fencing and fladry.

A west-wide team of working lands stakeholders received a 2020 National Conservation Innovation Grant, which has led to the development of an Interim Practice Standard. The CoW-CIG team, including ranchers from multiple states in the West who are utilizing these practices, will share ideas for transitioning from innovative strategies to broadly applicable practices through the NRCS Conservation Delivery framework.

Discussion will include approaches to habitat and ranch evaluation for conservation planning, along with approaches to site-specific implementation using a set of guiding principles for each practice.
