ARDMORE, OK – June 28, 2023 – Noble Research Institute announced the expansion of its recently launched program, Essentials of Regenerative Ranching, to include a new event in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Building on the success of the program’s inaugural launch, Noble is hosting the two-day training program at Oklahoma State University’s Totusek Arena in Stillwater, Oklahoma, on August 8-9, 2023.

Farmers and ranchers navigate uncertainty from weather, fluctuating market prices and skyrocketing inputs. Many producers are seeking new skills and tools that offer greater control and reduce their operational uncertainty. While regenerative ranching can help mitigate or avoid some of these issues altogether, ranchers may struggle to find reliable information about implementation or fail to receive the ongoing support they need for lasting success.

In response to these challenges, Noble Research Institute has designed Essentials of Regenerative Ranching to offer farmers and ranchers guidance in using core principles and proven monitoring methods. This program allows them to overcome obstacles, become more informed problem solvers and more resilient to the highs and lows of the industry. By participating in this program, ranchers join a community of like-minded producers who are shaping the future of ranching and leaving a lasting impact on their land and families.

Hugh Aljoe, Noble Research Institute’s Director of Ranches, Outreach, and Partnerships, expressed his enthusiasm about the expansion, saying, “We are thrilled to bring the Essentials of Regenerative Ranching program to Stillwater, Oklahoma, and to be on the Oklahoma State University campus. This allows us to reach even more ranchers and equip them with the tools and knowledge to build a more resilient future.”

Registration for the event in Stillwater, Texas, which will feature a combination of classroom and field work, is now open, and ranchers of all experience levels and operation sizes are encouraged to secure their spot early.

“The course is well-suited for ranchers of all experience levels and all types and sizes of operations,” Aljoe added. “No matter your situation, this program will transform the way you think about your ranch.”
