Williams County, ND
Tioga, ND

Start Date: 7/11/2017 -  
A seminar will be held in Tioga on July 19 to help livestock producers deal with the intense drought and guard pastures against further damage. Williams County Agriculture Improvement and the North Dakota State University Extension Service teamed up to put on the seminar. Topics will include water testing, nitrate testing in hay, various USDA programs, stocking rates and carrying capacity, determining forage production. “Those who have livestock are really starting to stress, as there is no grass growing for pasture or haying,” Williams County Extension Agent Danielle Steinhoff said. “It is going to be hard to get the livestock to fall, not to mention the winter months.” Williston Herald (N.D.), July 11, 2017
