Outdoor Range Management Tour at Lost Lake Ranch
County Extension is sponsoring an outdoor range management class at the Lost Lake Ranch on Tuesday, June 8 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. Dr. Jeff Mosley will address a variety of topics including range monitoring and rotational grazing options. We will also have a question-and-answer session where Jeff will be available to answer range management questions.
Dr. Jeff Mosley is the Montana State University (MSU) Extension Range Management Specialist and a professor in the MSU Department of Animal and Range Sciences. Jeff’s work focuses on grazing management, emphasizing invasive plants and livestock grazing relationships with fish and wildlife. He is a leading authority on using targeted livestock grazing to enhance wildlife habitat and to suppress noxious weeds. His efforts in rangeland monitoring and conflict resolution promote collaborative conservation that integrates ranching, wildlife, recreation, and other uses while respecting the health of the land and the people who rely on the land.
