ICYMI – High Plains Journal hosts events. Last year, due to COVID, our events went virtual. That was quite the transition! It threw several elements seemingly into chaos, but we pulled through.

2021 is, thankfully, a new year with new possibilities. While we hosted Soil Health U and Alfalfa U in virtual formats at the beginning of year, we are so excited to be hosting Cattle U in-person in Dodge City on July 29th & 30th.

Something even more is exciting? Our keynote speakers!

Keynote: Discovering Your Influential Power

Farmers and ranchers have amazing and unique stories to share with consumers. And with new communication channels being invented all the time it can be hard to find the best way. Our presentation will share examples of how you can effectively tell your story through conversation, application, and experience.
