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

Mark your calendars for the 2021 Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition (NGLC) –Nebraska Extension jointly sponsored Summer Grazing Tour scheduled for June 15, 2021 in north central Nebraska.

National Grazing Summer Tour - CANCELLED

Exploring the Nebraska Sandhills

The Grazing Tour set up for June 14-16, 2020 in the Sandhills has been cancelled.

This was a difficult decision, but due to the COVID-19 situation, the National Grazing Lands Coalition (NatGLC) and the Nebraska Grazing Lands Coalition felt this was the best decision.

Looking ahead to next year, the NGLC will host a summer grazing tour in 2021! Let let us know if you have any questions!

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.
