Wednesday, July 20

Goat browsing on cedar trees.

SDSU Extension will host a Goat-Targeted Grazing to Control Eastern Redcedar Field Day on July 20 from 10 a.m. to noon CDT at the Fort Randall Dam near Pickstown, South Dakota.

Attendees will have an opportunity to:

  • Watch goats in action browsing on cedars.
  • Talk with SDSU Extension personnel about cedar management.
  • Learn how cedars respond to goat browsing.


To find the field day site, travel all the way across to the west end of the Randall Dam. Take a left onto Toe Road W., then take the first right onto Ft. Randall Road and straight onto County Road 56. In about 3/4 of a mile, turn left into the mowed parking area.
