TALLGRASS RANGE SCHOOL

The Tallgrass Range School is scheduled for August 18-20, 2020 at Camp Wood YMCA, Elmdale, KS. For directions, Google "Camp Wood YMCA".

The theme for Tallgrass Range School  is "Ranching with a Clear Vision". 

Learn more about rangeland management in a friendly setting with other ranchers, land managers, range management students and natural resource professionals. You can register at kglc.org for the schools which cost $350 per student and covers room, board and tuition for the 2 ½ day schools. Scholarships of $175 are available for most ranchers and eligible college students while scholarships of $125 are available for most natural resource agency personnel.

There will be rancher and expert panels that will talk about how to plan for all the myriad of ways that weather, markets and other forces, like Covid 19, can change your plans for your ranch in this and every year so you can focus on caring for your greatest ranching asset, your native grasslands.

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.
