CORONA, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State University is seeking to help ranchers with wildlife management and brush control amid a dangerous fire season.

The school is hosting a wildlife management round-table discussion Tuesday at the Southwest Center for Rangeland Sustainability for area ranchers.

Shad Cox, ranch manager of the Corona Range and Livestock Research Center, says reduced income for ranchers due to drought conditions has made managing wildlife for income diversification a very important component to land management.

He says brush control also is important in keeping rangeland and watersheds healthy and productive for wildlife and livestock.

Federal climate maps show New Mexico is in the worst drought condition of any state. More than 80 percent of the state is dealing with extreme and exceptional drought conditions.
