The Wyoming Department of Agriculture will host a series of workshops across the state to help United States Forest Service (USFS) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) permittees develop drought contingency plans for their grazing permits.
The closest workshop to Bridger Valley is in Kemmerer on Oct. 23, 2-5:30 p.m.
The rest of the workshops will be held through Oct. 16.
The workshops will help participants understand the role of drought contingency plans play with respect to their grazing permit and the importance of developing a plan. Along with this, there will be a focus on improving dialogue with federal agencies and developing a better understanding of the financial impacts of proactive planning for drought by comparing cost-savings of a contingency plan to costs for emergency feed, transportation and more.
