Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition contracts Frick, Kemp as range techs

Nebraska

The Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition announced it has contracted with two range technicians to implement the new NGLC Rangeland Monitoring Program.

Justin Frick of Yankton, S.D., will serve as NGLC Range Tech East, providing on-site grazing land assistance and development of a monitoring plan for ranchers and landowners on the eastern side of Nebraska. Kort Kemp of Hay Center, Neb., will be the new NGLC Range Tech West for the western half of the state, offering the same services to grazing lands owners interested in measuring change and making improvements on their lands.

Frick was born and raised on farm north of Yankton where his family has a cow-calf operation. He attended college at North Dakota State University and attained a bachelor's degree in range science. After college Frick worked for the Eastern Nevada Landscape Coalition where he was a vegetative field technician in the rangelands of eastern Nevada, and also was employed at a local farm and feedlot.

Kemp grew up on a third-generation cow-calf operation north of Curtis, Neb. Previously, he worked as a Soil Conservationist for the Natural Resources Conservation Service in Grant, Neb., and as a Range Technician for the Bureau of Land Management in Alturas, Calif. Kemp is a graduate of the University of Nebraska with a bachelor's degree in Livestock Grazing Systems.

Frick can be contacted at 605-661-7045 or justin@nebraskagrazinglands.org and Kemp can be reached at 308-362-7333 or kort@nebraskagrazinglands.org. To enroll in the NGLC Rangeland Monitoring Program, contact NGLC Coordinator Marcy Hunter at 402.465.4304 or marcy@nebraskagrazinglands.org.

The Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition is an independent organization of ranchers, interest groups, and agencies whose mission is to collaborate on projects that improve the management and health of Nebraska grazing lands and ensure long-term stability of rangeland resources. The NGLC is funded through grants from the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Nebraska Environmental Trust, the Nebraska Rural Development Commission and the Sandhills Task Force.
