OSU KBREC To Host Wolf and Livestock Interaction Seminar

[OR] The community is invited to attend a wolf and livestock interaction seminar on May 2 at the Klamath County Fairgrounds. The seminar, which is free and open to the public, will focus on the status of wolves in Klamath County, policies regarding wolf management, how wolves may affect livestock production, and strategies that can be used to minimize the risk that wolves present to livestock production. The seminar is scheduled for 3-6 p.m. on May 2 and will be in hall 2 at the Klamath County Fairgrounds. “Not only do wolves have the potential to harm livestock, but science done here in Oregon has demonstrated that just the mere presence of wolves has the potential to increase stress levels in livestock, thus having deleterious effects on reproduction rates and weight gain” said KBREC livestock extension agent Ian McGregor. “It’s important that livestock producers get this information to better understand how to minimize the risk that wolves present to livestock production, while staying within the confines of the law.”
