Ranching and California’s Drought Workshop and Webcast

On November 7, 2014, the U.S. Drought Monitor authors and the California State Climatologist met at UC Davis to talk about 1) how the U.S. Drought monitor is updated weekly; and 2) how local expert knowledge, real time ranch impacts, and other relevant data can be used to inform the U.S Drought Monitor. They also shared new information on California Ranchers’ perceptions and experiences with drought, new livestock feeding strategies during drought, and seasonal weather forecasts for California.
