Wolf Depredation Prevention

The Office of Species Conservation typically accepts proposals between November and February annually for producers interested in funding for proactive, preventative measures such as range riders, game cameras, temporary pens, fladry, fox lights, livestock guardian dogs and other supplies. OSC recognizes that each livestock operation is different and has its own set of challenges. Check back for an announcement this fall on the total funds available and how to apply for funding for the 2025 grazing season.
