Episode 5: Wildfire Awareness Month

Episode 5: Wildfire Awareness Month

In honor of Wildfire Awareness Month, Michael Delbar sits down with targeted grazing expert Dan Macon. Dan serves as the University of California Cooperative Extension Livestock and Natural Resources Advisor for Placer, Nevada, Sutter, and Yuba Counties. He also owns and operates the Flying Mule Sheep Company out of Auburn, CA.

California has been plagued by catastrophic wildfires in recent years, and it’s more important than ever that we look for ways to prevent these types of disasters that wreak havoc on our communities. In this episode, the duo talks about how our four-legged friends — sheep, goats, and cattle — can help reduce fire fuel loads and prevent wildfires. It is important that we talk about prevention now to prepare for the upcoming fire season.

Listen along with us and plan for, prepare for, and prevent wildfires this season!

Tune in every month to learn how you can be involved in preserving the future of the Golden State for generations to come.
