CO Section SRM Summer Ranch Tour

June 20, 2018 - June 21, 2018

$2 – $35

This educational event will take place in the afternoon of June 20 on the Jordan Angus Ranch located 7 miles east of Briggsdale. On June 21 the Pawnee Buttes Seed Company will conduct their annual Grass Workshop in the Weld County area.

Jordan Angus Ranch received the 2017 Colorado Section SRM Excellence in Rangeland Conservation award. The ranch tour will highlight the Jordan family’s exemplary efforts in the stewardship of the rangeland resources under their management. Managed grazing is the tool used on the ranch to improve soil and plant health; water absorption and retention; and nutrient and energy cycling.

During the morning of June 20 there will be a workshop for high school agriculture teachers on the Jordan Cattle Company ranch to learn about range and pasture management concepts; discuss how to incorporate these concepts into teaching curricula; and receive basic instruction on FFA rangeland judging and plant ID as a Career Development Exercise.
The Colorado Section of the Society for Range Management and Jordan Angus Ranch, together with the West Greeley Conservation District and Pawnee Buttes Seed Inc., are pleased to provide this training opportunity.  Register at:
