Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program is delighted to invite you to The New Agrarian Toolkit: A Webinar Series to Dig Deep and Level Up. Inspired by beginning agrarian input and years of conversations with folks like you, we’ve designed this webinar series for our program alumni as well as any beginning agrarians seeking community in diving deeper into these topics. Bring your stories, your hard questions, and maybe dinner if you’re catching us right after work. We’ll see you there!
As ranching changes and evolves over time, so do the teams that make them thrive. In August’s New Agrarian Toolkit Webinar we will speak with two non-traditional ranch teams that successfully find a rhythm in day to day ranching. Both teams are made up of owners, managers, and an apprentice from the Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program (NAP). In this webinar we will learn of the strengths and challenges these teams face daily, what makes them successful, and strategies you can bring into your own working teams. We’ll highlight realistic challenges in working with a group of people with deep passions during long physical days on a ranch. We’re excited to have the team from Oxbow Cattle Company located just outside of Missoula, Montana. Bart Morris and Wendy Morris, owners of Oxbow Cattle, started the company in 2014. Natalie Berkman has worked for Morris’ since 2022. Natalie is a NAP alumni, she apprenticed for 2 seasons for the Milton Ranch in Roundup, Montana. The Oxbow team will be joined by our very own Julie Sullivan, NAP Mentor Support Specialist. She and her husband own and operate San Juan Ranch near Saguache CO, and are the NAP founding mentors. Joining Julie will be Noelle McDonough, NAP alumnus and now co-manager at San Juan Ranch. Together, these speakers bring decades of experience in mentorship and fostering healthy working teams.
