    Pasture/Rangeland

    Leasing/Pasture Rent

    There are many things to consider when determining the rent value of a pasture.  Fence condition, water availability, grass type and quality, and who pays for upkeep of fences are a few things to be considered.  For a list of other possible issues to be considered, please see FAQs: Pasture Leases in Kansas.

    Grazing Management

    Proper pasture grazing management will insure that you preserve the longevity and quality of your pasture.  Weed control, stocking rate, and fertilizer are some things that need to be properly managed.

    Controlled Burning

    Prescribed burning has become a major, though potentially dangerous, management tool throughout Kansas.  Poorly managed burns or ignorance of safety measures can lead to property damage and even injury or death.  Even in well-managed burns, accidents can occur.  Before, during and after every burn, safety should be the major consideration.  Follow basic burning procedures, wear proper clothing, and be prepared for the unexpected.

    Ks Flint Hills Smoke Management have been researching and compiling a lot of good information to help producers and others while trying to do a burn.  Check them out.  Also check out the following links when you are thinking about doing a "prescribed burn", they will be very helpful.
