Drought Impacts on California Ranches

360_cattle_ranching_0903

Drought is nothing new for ranchers; in fact, ranchers largely depend on dryland grazing and are among the first impacted by drought. Over 90% of California has endured severe to exceptional drought since 2012. Given the extent, and severity of the current drought, staff from the UC Rangelands are interviewing livestock producers to learn more about the real impacts of this drought on their operations.

UC Rangeland’s goal is to interview 200 beef and sheep producers. Interested in participating or want more information? Please contact Dan Macon (dmacon@ucdavis.edu; (530) 889-7324), Leslie Roche (lmroche@ucdavis.edu; (530) 752-5583), or Tracy Schohr (tkschohr@ucdavis.edu; (530) 754-8766).
