August range schools cover adaptive management, profitability topics

“Adapting Your Management to a Changing Climate is the theme for the Kansas Grazing Lands Coalition summer range schools,” said Tim Christian, state coordinator for the group. “The Mid-/Shortgrass Range School runs from Aug. 5 to 7 at Camp Lakeside, Lake Scott, and the Tallgrass Range School is set for Aug. 19 to 21 at Camp Wood YMCA, Elmdale.”

The climate in Kansas continues to change—uncertain weather, uncertain markets and diminishing wildlife species and their habitat needs are among the tough challenges facing ranchers today. This situation calls for action—rethinking your management options and strategies, said Christian. The intent of the schools is to help inform decision-makers and provide them with sound grazing principles that they can take home and employ on their operations. Our cadre of instructors includes ranchers, agency, university and organizational staffs who provide hands-on instruction in the field as well as classroom presentation.

The 2014 registration fees are still a bargain at $300 per person. The fee covers course materials, on-site lodging and meals, and other related costs. Ranchers, landowners, and students may qualify for a $150 scholarship if they meet eligibility and request one using KGLC’s scholarship form. Agency staffs may qualify for $100 in scholarships. The form and more information on the Schools is available at www.kglc.org under 2014 Range Schools found in the navigation bar. Scholarship applications must be submitted by July 22 for the Mid-/Shortgrass School and Aug. 5 for the Tallgrass School.

KGLC organized in 1991 as a non-profit educational organization and its vision is to regenerate Kansas grazing lands. This is achieved through the management, economics, ecology, production, and technical assistance programs provided by voluntary methods to reach landowners, ranchers, and others making decisions on grazing lands.

For more information on the 2014 KGLC Range Schools, contact Tim Christian, state coordinator, at 620-241-3636 or tdchristian@cox.net, or Ken Sherraden assistant coordinator, at 785-922-7061, or kennethsherraden@sbcglobal.net. You may also visit www.kglc.org.
