Managing Drought Risk on the Ranch

Develop Strategies

A drought plan will include strategies that you implement before drought to improve your soil, forage, water, financial, herd, and human resources, as well as strategies that you implement to conserve resources during drought.  Thinking through the feasibility, impact, and cost/benefit ratio of each potential management option will help you identify the strategies that will work best for your operation before, during, and after drought.
