Groups To Host Sustainable Agriculture Listening Sessions

Groups To Host Sustainable Agriculture Listening Sessions

Grazing issues, other ag topics will be discussed in Nebraska and North Dakota.

The Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition will help conduct a public listening session July 21 at the 3 Bar Cattle Co., south of Nenzel. The ranch is owned and operated by the John Ravenscroft family.

It is one of two such meetings to be conducted by the North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (NCR-SARE) in cooperation with Grazing Lands Coalitions in Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota. The other meeting is Nov. 19 in Mandan, N.D.

The NCR-SARE listening sessions serve as an opportunity to bring together people with differing viewpoints to share their perspectives of sustainability and agriculture.

"Like nearly all those involved in production agriculture, ranchers depend on the sustainability of the resource they manage for their livelihood," explains Roger Gates of the South Dakota Grassland Coalition. "Maintenance of this extensive grassland resource, consisting almost entirely of privately owned land in the North Central region, is critical to the livelihood of these ranchers and the mutually dependent rural communities."

These listening sessions are open to the public. For more information, and to participate in the Nebraska listening sessions, contact  Ron Bolze, coordinator, Nebraska  Grazing Lands Coalition, 402-426- 2033 (home office), 402-321-0067 (cell), or email him

You can also contact: Jay Jenkins, Extension educator, Cherry County, Valentine, at 402-376-1850 (office), 800-657-2188 (toll free office), or email
