Event description

Description

The objective of this years Grass Tour is to learn about the Five Dimensions of Ranching: Landscape, Animals, Forage Resource, Time and The Unexpected. We will cover topics ranging from the effects of Co2 on biodiversity, differences in plant phtosynthetic cycles (C3 vs C4 vs CAM), the effects of Mycorrhizal fungi, soil health, reclamation and much more! We have invited several panelists to discuss these subjects, we will get out in the field for some hands on learning, we will have workshops, food and drink, hiking, and for those interested in spending more time with the land we invite you to our camp out/ pow-wow which we will be hosting in Grover.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to share and grow ideas with your fellow man!
