IDEAS & ADVICE
NOLO TO NOLO
This page is to acknowledge the successes of NOLOs who are working with their tenants and others to care for their land, build soil health, and improve resources overall on their farms and ranches. It's intended to help NOLOs learn from one another.
It may take some time for this page to become a way to communicate successes, but in the meantime, we want to thank those of you NOLOs who participated in a survey by South Dakota State University in 2018.
The survey was meant to be a vehicle for conservation districts and NRCS to get to know their NOLO customers better as a group, to better serve NOLOs in South Dakota.
NOLO TO NOLO: JEANNIE FRANCEAUS
“There is a tendency to think that is wasteful not to graze pastures all the way down, but the SD Grassland Coalition and partners taught me that the grass you leave behind is mulch for the soil and results in more grass next year. It really does!” Jeannie Franceus
WOMEN LANDOWNER THOUGHTS
ABOUT CONSERVATION, SOIL HEALTH
When a group of South Dakota women landowners—some of whom live on the farm, some who live out of state—gathered to learn more about soil health and how to best care for the land they own, we asked them a few questions about how they view the importance of conservation and soil health, and whether they face any special challenges as a woman landowner.
