To help ranchers with planning for the future, SDSU Extension will host several Grazing and Finance Planning meetings throughout western South Dakota beginning April 3.

Speakers will include: Laura Edwards, SDSU Extension State Climatologist – weather update and outlook; Dave Ollila, SDSU Extension Sheep Field Specialist – grazing and forage tools to evaluate spring turn out and expected grass production; Heather Gessner, SDSU Extension Livestock Business Management Field Specialist – finances: creating production and personal budgets, as well as working with bankers.
