WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas farm groups are hosting a ranch tour focusing on the drought and how to best manage resources to survive the upcoming grazing season.
The Kansas Graziers Association says the tour will take place May 11 at the Ted Alexander Ranch, located 19 miles west of Medicine Lodge in south-central Kansas.
Morning presentations will cover drought management. Lunch will be followed up with a tour of the ranch.
The Alexander ranch covers 7,000 acres in the heart of the Red Hills in Barber County. The operation typically stocks between 500 and 700 cow-calf pairs or 2,500 yearlings on a rotational grazing method.
