The Targeted Grazing Certificate Program
The Targeted Grazing Committee of SRM worked collaboratively with the American Sheep Industry Association to create a series of presentations to describe the major principles of targeted grazing to accomplish landscape enhancement. These principles include:
♦ Understanding the value of targeted grazing and setting a goal.
♦ Predicting plant response to grazing and browsing.
♦ Selecting the correct animal for targeted grazing.
♦ Shaping and training animals for targeted grazing.
♦ Establishing a monitoring program for vegetation management projects.
The Targeted Grazing Committee offers land and livestock managers the opportunity to explore these principles through our online workshop. We also off a “Targeted Grazing Certificate” for those who want to study the application of targeted grazing and gain recognition for mastering foundational knowledge about targeted grazing.
A Targeted Grazing Certificate is available to participants who attend all 5 sessions (live or recorded) of the online workshop and complete a follow-up assignments. The $25 fee includes:
1) Individual feedback and guidance from targeted grazing experts.
2) 4 assignments that will result in a targeted grazing plan upon completion.
3) Learning materials including booklets and fliers
4) A certificate of completion signed by officers of the Society for Range Management Targeted Grazing Committee.
Registration Currently Open. We will accept just 5 more applications for the 2015 season and this year’s Certificate program will close on Friday, March 6th.
