Our Purpose

Dedicated to the enhancement of grasslands, the Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition is comprised of ranchers and private landowners all focused on creating public awareness and improvement of the grazing lands in Nebraska. The organization’s top focus is to provide voluntary technical assistance and educational opportunities on grazing land management. Healthy Nebraska grazing lands translate directly into forage for livestock, habitat for wildlife, economic benefits for landowners and rural communities, and clean water for much of the Great Plains.

Upcoming Events

Producer Panel & Attorney Will Share at Generational Transition Workshop

Thursday, November 21st in Hartington, NE

     Time is a scare commodity- especially for farmers and ranchers.  Are you too busy to finish your estate and transition plan?  What happens if your family’s farming or ranching operation is unable to transfer to the next generation? 

     Now is the time to start your transition!  A meeting will be held to help families navigate the common landmines including legal, financial, and communication issues on Thursday, November 21st at Hartington, Nebraska.

     Several respected Nebraska farmers and ranchers have agreed to share their experiences with generational transition. Learn from this panel of producers, who have experienced transitions, each in their own way.  The panel will discuss what worked and what did not work for their operations and families.

Grazing management, stockmanship and family each key to ranching efforts

(Jan. 18, 2019) – Determination, hard work and a willingness to learn have been key to Ryan and Jamie Sexson’s ranching efforts. Ryan and Jamie both grew up in the Nebraska Sandhills with a passion for ranching, but were often told there was no future for them in ranching. After various jobs on and off ranches, in 2014, the couple was able to lease a small ranch near Nenzel, Neb. Today, they are raising their three young children – ages 11, 9, and 8 – in the ranching lifestyle as they custom graze and calve heifers and cows. Ryan also still does day work for area ranches.
