Building Drought Resilience into Your Farm

September 27 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm MDT

Join us for this information-packed, interactive field day in New Mexico. Great Plains rancher and renowned educator Dale Strickler will lead the workshop and will share proven techniques to create agricultural abundance despite drought. Dale will help us Read the Land, Make Practical Plans, and Reap the Benefits of redesigning ag systems to catch and hold water, then put it fully to work for you. Come with questions and you’ll leave with a plan to protect your farm and your future!

Special Presentation: Dr. Elizabeth Heilman of Wichita State University: If regenerative agriculture works so well why isn’t everyone doing this? Learn to identify and overcome barriers to achieving the farming success you dream of!

Building Drought Resilience into Your Farm will take place on Tuesday, September 27, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Bostwick Farm near Melrose, New Mexico.
