Cattlemen from around the southwest will be gathering today in Consul.

The Cattlemen’s Workshop gets underway at 10:30 this morning at the Senior Citizens Centre.

Producers will also hear from Tom Harrison the Executive Director of SODCAP (the South of the Divide Conservation Action Program) 

He says they are now in the position to sign producers up under the program.

"The results based conservation option is probably the most desirable one. We have signed a couple habit management agreements and a couple habit restoration agreements already. The uptake on restoration is really weak and there is probably a lot of competition for the annual crops," Harrison said. 

He notes each agreement is tailored to the producer's operation.

"To the outsider that $200 an acre plus the cost of the seed that's running $115-150 per acre, so it's not cheap," he said.

There are a number of options for producers that help or reward producers financially for participating in the SOCAP conservation efforts through the various programs that benefits not only producers but wildlife, grasslands and the environment.

Today’s meeting gets underway at 10:30 at the Senior Citizens Centre in Consul, with Harrison’s presentation taking place at 1 o’clock.
