Rural Living Events - 2014

Range Management and Poisonous Plants

July 8, 2014
5:30 pm
Albany County Fairgrounds
Hwy 287
Laramie, WY

Have livestock?  (horses, cattle or other grazers) Worried about poisonous plants? This workshop will provide small acreage landowners tools to assess their range health. When rangelands aren’t managed well, increased numbers of weeds, some of those being poisonous plants, may begin to pop up. When the grass is gone and there are only poisonous plants to eat, animals can become sick from ingesting these. Information will be provided by Martin Curry (LRCD), Kellie Chichester (UW Extension) and Lindsey Wheat (Albany County Weed and Pest).

For more information contact the Albany Co Extension office at 307-721-2571 or
