Stay tuned for the theme of 2023 Adult Range Academies and the agendas of each event, coming later in May 2023.
There will be rancher and expert panels that will talk about how to make your rangeland the best it can be so you can plan long-term for your ranch’s native grasslands to be your greatest ranching asset.
Besides learning plant identification, figuring stocking rates, monitoring vegetation response, estimating forage allocation and the rest of basics needed to manage your rangeland, there will be ranchers and natural resource professionals from NRCS and other organizations talking with you about how to plan long term for whatever nature or market forces bring to your ranching enterprise and how to respond to keep your rangeland health high and your livestock productive.
Make this the year you attend the Kansas Adult Range Academy near you…and bring your neighbors along!
