International Rangeland Congress July 17 to July 22

By: Terry Kowalchuk PAg, Provincial Forage Specialist

Cattle on rangeland
Rangelands comprise over 40 per cent of the landmass of the world and provide valuable grazing for livestock and wildlife. Canada has nearly 40 million acres of remaining native rangeland, with just over 12 million acres in Saskatchewan. These areas serve as a source of high-quality water, clean air and open spaces, and as a setting for agriculture, recreation and other economic activities.

This year, Saskatchewan will be hosting the 10th International Rangeland Congress in Saskatoon. The event will bring together about 500 participants and speakers from around the world to discuss current and emerging research and extension relating to global rangeland and pasture resources. The congress will feature presentations and posters in five key areas:

  1. Multiple Use of Rangelands
  2. Grazing Land Assessment and Management in a High-Tech World
  3. State of Global and Canadian Rangeland and Pasture Resources
  4. The People of the Grasslands
  5. Ecological Goods and Services of Rangelands and Pasturelands

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about innovative rangeland initiatives that are being implemented around the world and right here at home.
