Please consider casting your support for the following position:
Statewide UCCE Specialist in Grazing Ruminant Nutrition
This is a statewide position that would work closely with our existing UC range, livestock, and vet med programs. It would focus on improving the bottom-line for all CA ranchers (e.g., drought feeding strategies, mineral nutrition) and aiding managers to protect natural resources (e.g., minimizing livestock selection for non-forage species such as riparian woodies, examining nutritional aspects of targeted grazing for weed management). This position would work well with our colleagues in the CSU system.
