  Estimated read time:

ARDMORE, Okla. — Noble Research Institute Director of Business Development Jeff Moen and Wildlife and Range Consultant Josh Gaskamp have been selected to participate in Oklahoma Agricultural Leadership Program (OALP) Class XVIII.

"Jeff and Josh are talented, rising leaders at the Noble Research Institute and within our state agriculture industry," said Bill Buckner, Noble Research Institute president and CEO. "Having one individual selected to the program is an honor; having two selected shows the caliber of these individuals."

The OALP mission is to develop leaders for Oklahoma agriculture. This program focuses on three specific objectives: to help potential leaders develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of people, to help them develop a better understanding of basic systems of economics and government, and to help them use this appreciation and understanding to solve problems and advance Oklahoma agriculture.

"I am excited for the opportunity to experience the many layers of agriculture in Oklahoma, the U.S. and internationally," Gaskamp said. "After our first group meeting, the class already feels like family. Inside and out of the classroom, we all have a passion for learning from classmates and professionals in different agriculture sectors. I'm excited to begin this journey of learning with and from them."

The class will attend leadership development seminars during the next 18 months, as well as participate in a study tour through the eastern portion of the United States. The program will conclude with an international study experience.

"We have a tremendous opportunity to experience agriculture across our country and around the world, then bring that knowledge back to improve agriculture in our home state," Moen said. "I'm proud to be a part of Oklahoma agriculture, and I'm excited about learning new ways to support and propel our industry even further."

Noble Research Institute, LLC (www.noble.org) is an independent nonprofit agricultural research organization dedicated to delivering solutions to great agricultural challenges. Headquartered in Ardmore, Oklahoma, Noble’s goal is to achieve land stewardship for improved soil health in grazing animal production with lasting producer profitability. Achievement of this goal will be measured by farmers and ranchers profitably regenerating hundreds of millions of acres of U.S. grazing lands. Noble aims to remove, mitigate or help producers avoid the barriers that deter the lasting use of regenerative, profitable land management practices in grazing animal production.

Researchers, consultants, educators and ranch staff work together to give farmers and ranchers the skills and tools to regenerate the land in a profitable manner. Noble researchers and educators seek and deliver answers to producer questions concerning regenerative management of pasture and range environments, wildlife, pecan production, and livestock production. Regenerative management recognizes that each decision made on the ranch impacts the interactions of the soil, plants, water, animals and producers. Noble’s 14,000 acres of working ranch lands provide a living laboratory on which to demonstrate and practice regenerative principles and ideas to deliver value to farmers and ranchers across the U.S.
