Livestock & Natural Resources
It was a busy July with data collection for research projects and events. Last month, we hosted a successful tour for local permitees and range staff on the Plumas National Forest - you can learn more here.
August is set to be a busy month too! Be sure to stop by the Ag Department booth at the fair to see us!
Also, on August 29 is a SB 88 Compliance Measurement and Monitoring Course, hosted by UCCE and Plumas-Sierra Cattlemen in Taylorsville. For more information on the regulation and workshop click here.

August 29, 2018 - Measurement and Reporting Course Complying with SB88
Senate Bill 88 requires that all water right holders who have previously diverted or intend to divert more than 10 acre-feet per year (riparian and pre1914 claims), or are authorized to divert more than 10 acre-feet per year under a permit, license, or registration, to measure and report the water they divert. Legislation was (AB548) passed that allows ranchers to become self-certified from a UCCE course to report water usage. Click here to register, $25 per person for lunch and materials.
