No Till on the Plains "Points South" Bus Tour
August 5-8, 2014
Planning is complete for the 2014 No-till on Plains bus tour. This year’s tour is August 5-8 and heads south through Kansas and Oklahoma. Nine stops are planned over four days at producer farms using continuous no-till, cover crops and livestock integration. Registration is open and 54 spots are available. “We are excited about heading south this year into Oklahoma,” says Ryan Speer, President of No-till on the Plains. Speers’ operation, Jacobs Farms, near Halstead, Kansas will be the first farm stop.
The tour will originate in Salina, KS and travel to Jacobs Farms, then head south into Oklahoma. Farm stops in Oklahoma include Randy Lanie farms near Manchester, Marty Williams farms near Red Rock, Matt Alig’s farms near Kingfisher, Jimmy Kinder’s farm near Walters, and Alan Mindemann’s farm near Apache. Stops are also planned at Oklahoma State University’s cover crop plots near Stillwater and the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation in Ardmore.
The group will spend the morning of August 7 on the Noble Foundation campus learning about the services offered to produers across the region. Additionally, the group will tour campus greenhouse experiments with crops and forages and hear from the researchers performing the work.
