“There’s always been those numbers out there as far as stocking rate goes that have been a fly-by-the-seat-of-the-pants type of deal, but what NRCS’s technical support does is it brings some actual science into it.” That’s just one of the insights shared by Kansas rancher Russell Blew in a new 4-minute Lesser Prairie-Chicken Initiative (LPCI) video.
If a picture’s worth a thousand words, a lively short video speaks volumes. LPCI’s Prescribed Grazing video is just one of a trio of new videos LPCI will use for education outreach to landowners, partner organizations, and the public. Also complete is a video on LPCI Redcedar Removal. In both 4-minute videos, ranchers and LPCI field staff show and describe how these range management practices work and how they benefit both ranch operations and lesser prairie-chickens. The third video, on LPCI’s mesquite removal practice, will be released shortly.
Thank you to Russell Blew, Martin Moore, and the many other ranchers who were willing to take the time to share their insights during the filming of our new videos.
