Wildfire & Disaster Information for Ranchers
Annual rangelands in the Sacramento Valley and Sierra Foothills are prone to fire. Download our After the Fire: Resources for Ranchers guide to get information about protecting your soil, restoring forage productivity, and preventing the establishment of weeds.
Disaster Livestock Access Pass
Ranchers in Placer, Nevada, and Yuba Counties, along with UC Cooperative Extension (UCCE) and the County Agricultural Departments from these three counties, have established a Disaster Livestock Access Program to facilitate livestock and human safety before, during, and after wildfire and other emergencies. Ultimately, we intend for this approach to be extended to other types of commercial agricultural production in these counties.
