BROOKINGS, S.D. – SDSU Extension invites women in agriculture to attend a Women on the Range Workshop on June 8 and 9 at The Branding Iron restaurant in Belle Fourche, South Dakota.
Nicole Masters, a soil health expert and the director of Integrity Soils, will be the main workshop presenter. Attendees will learn how soil health fits into regenerative agriculture, with discussions on soil health indicators, the carbon cycle, plant/microbial interactions, nutrient cycling and visual soil assessments.
"We're excited to offer a Women on the Range event that brings in Nicole Masters to discuss with us how all parts of the system – the soil, the plants and grazing livestock – work together to create soil health,” said Krista Ehlert, SDSU Extension Range Specialist.
Women on the Range is typically offered twice a year. The June workshop will start at 9 a.m. and end around 5 p.m. on both days. Registration is $150 and is limited to 40 people. The registration fee includes lunch and supper on June 8, and breakfast and lunch on June 9.
Participants must pre-register online by visiting the SDSU Extension Events page. A detailed scheduled will be emailed to participants.
