Oklahoma Agriculture Department Starts Pasture Directory

Fri, 16 Sep 2011 16:37:27 CDT

Oklahoma Agriculture Department Starts Pasture Directory Have you got any grass? That's the question a lot of Oklahoma ranchers would like to ask landowners in Oklahoma and neighboring states. After enduring months of record-breaking drought, heat and wildfires, pastures are brown and bare all over Oklahoma. Many livestock owners have been forced to sell their herds as a result.             

The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry is creating the Oklahoma Pasture Lease Directory to help livestock owners in Oklahoma locate producers in neighboring states who have pasture they are willing to lease through the winter months.            

"We hope this will give our state's pastures time to recover and give relief to owners who want to keep their herds," Secretary of Agriculture Jim Reese said.            

The directory is online at www.ag.ok.gov, which is linked below. An application form for those with pasture can be downloaded by clicking here. Completed forms should be mailed to Oklahoma Pasture Lease Directory at the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry, PO Box 528804, Oklahoma City, OK 73152. Forms can also be e-mailed to jack.carson@ag.ok.gov or faxed to (405) 522-4855.            

Producer information requested includes name, address, dates pasture is available, pasture type, number of acres, approximate grazing capacity, water sources and fencing type. Pasture types are defined as Bermuda, native, wheat and fescue.

Prices will not be listed on the directory since all details are between the lessee and lessor. Listings will remain on the directory for sixty (60) days and can be renewed for an additional sixty (60) days. Changes to the listings can be made by calling the Hay Hotline at 800-580-6543.
