NDSU Extension to Host Grazing Technology Discussions

By Miranda Meehan and Kevin Sedivec

There is a growing interest in the adaptation of precision livestock technologies, including technologies that can enhance grazing management. Grazing technologies currently available include virtual fence, water monitoring systems and smart tags.

To date, ranchers in North Dakota have been hesitant to implement these technologies, in part due to the high upfront costs of adaptation and the logistics of integrating technologies into their current production systems. There are still a lot of unknowns regarding the implementation of some of these technologies at the ranch scale.

North Dakota State University Extension will be hosting two discussions focused on grazing technologies to share more about available technologies and answer rancher questions. NDSU researchers will provide an overview of the technologies and share their experiences. Industry representatives will also be available to answer questions about their products.

Please join us to learn more about grazing technologies.

  • Thursday, March 28 – 1 p.m. at the Valley City Eagles
  • Tuesday, April 2 – 1 p.m. at the Menoken Farm
