Who knew that “totality” meant total cloud cover!  I feel bad for those that didn’t get to see it.  We got just a glimpse through the clouds and then it got real dark!  I had a friend fly in from Washington DC, just for the Eclipse.  Whoops!

Now that all that is behind us, the Eastern Kansas Grazing School can take the spotlight.  David Hallauer and I are excited to be able to host the school in Holton this year.  This school is in its sixth year, we have a committee of Agents, specialists and NRCS folks that plan the school each year.  They are bringing to you the experts in rotational grazing.  Mark Green is a Range conservationist from Missouri that has been rotationally grazing most of his life.  Not only does he practice what he preaches at home, but he designs systems for others with his NRCS work in Springfield Missouri.  He has a collection of electric fence gadgets, and he will show you what works and what doesn’t.  Mark has a wealth of information to share.  Fencing is always a big issue when grazing animals and the other issue is water.  Mark also has a display of portable watering systems that could work for you.  We will turn Mark lose and let him share his experiences.  Even if, you are not going to do rotational grazing, I guarantee you will learn something from the fencing and water presentation that you can use at home.

Doug Spencer, is our hometown guy, who is now the Range Conservationist in Kansas.  Doug also, experiments with the family cowherd and grazing.  Doug will be one of our main presenters and we will visit his families operation.

We do limit registration, for the ultimate size group, but we do have a few openings.  There is a $60 charge for the two days, for the first person from the farm or ranch and $30 for the second person.

Call or email today, registration information is located on our website:
