Schmidt Leaves KRC to Return to Farm
At the end of March, KRC Field Organizer Jason Schmidt left KRC to return to his family’s farm in south central Kansas. Jason worked part-time as a KRC grazing consultant, working directly with producers and organizing educational workshops around the state. But he decided it was time to return to his parent’s farm and develop his own operation. Jason is now helping with the family dairy and crop farming, but also is developing his own grass based cattle operation and a small herd of Katahdin sheep. Jason continues working with KRC on a very limited basis handling our monthly Grazing Teleconference Calls and organizing the Eastern Kansas Grazing School set for September. Jason was recently recognized by Farm Aid as a “Hero Farmer” and you can read more about Jason on their website at www.farmaid.org. KRC wishes Jason the best of luck!
