Sustainability in ranching - A panel discussion

Sustainability in ranching - A panel discussion

By Scout Nelson

The upcoming panel discussion titled "Making Sense of Sustainability" is scheduled for Friday, June 21, at 4:30 p.m. in the Fontenelle Room of the Sheraton Sioux Falls Hotel Convention Center.

This event is a precursor to the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Foundation Prime Time Gala and aims to shed light on sustainability opportunities within the ranching industry.

Hosted by AgSpire, the panel will feature prominent figures such as Brady Wulf, a rancher from Clear Springs Cattle Co., Don Gales, CEO of Friona Industries, and Tim Hardman, global sustainability director at Fulton Marketing Group.

Each panelist brings a unique perspective on sustainable practices from extensive backgrounds in cattle ranching, corporate leadership, and global food supply chain management.

Topics of discussion will include the benefits of grazing cover crops, soil health enhancements, and financial programs like premiums, incentives, and cost-shares that support sustainable practices. Attendees will learn about effective strategies for improving herd efficiencies and the health of soil and grasslands.

The panel will be moderated by Jared Knock, a South Dakota rancher and vice president of business development at AgSpire. Knock, who is deeply involved in diverse agricultural ventures, will guide the discussion towards practical applications of sustainability that can be tailored to individual ranching operations.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. This gathering is a significant opportunity for cattle producers to engage with experts and gain valuable insights that can enhance both their environmental stewardship and economic viability.
