Webinar on Conflict Prevention practices and how to support these practices through Farm Bill programs
February 23 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm MST
Join NRCS staff, WLA, Heart of the Rockies and the rest of the Conflict on Working Lands CIG (CoW-CIG) team on February 23rd at 11:30 am MT to learn about the need for technical and financial assistance for producer-implemented non-lethal predator-livestock conflict prevention practices and to become familiar with technical information useful for conservation planning.
The goal of the CoW-CIG project is to reduce the financial and social burden to private landowners of expanding predator populations through innovation and evaluation of techniques that reduce predator conflicts on working lands, leading to more resilient ranches, rural communities and maintenance of connected landscapes.
This webinar will outline emerging opportunities for Farm Bill programs to support livestock producers in the implementation of range riding, carcass management and various types of electric fencing/fladry.
