Noble Research Institute Offers Resources for Producers to Improve Regenerative Ranching Efforts  

Listen to Ron Hays talk with Hugh Aljoe about the latest on regenerative ranching efforts from the Noble Research Institute.

Senior Farm and Ranch Broadcaster, Ron Hays, is talking with Hugh Aljoe of the Noble Research Institute about the latest on regenerative ranching efforts and courses offered to empower producers to improve their regenerative agriculture efforts.

“Over the last couple of years, we have transitioned our own ranches, which is about 13,500 acres, some native grass, some introduced pasture, some we have pecans on, into what we call this regenerative ranching focus, which is just grazing land soil health focus- that’s it,” Aljoe said. “What we want to do is monitor all of the economics that go along with it.”

Aljoe said when it comes to regenerative agriculture practices, some of the most common questions farmers and ranchers ask include how much it will cost and what the return on investment is.

“Our guys on the ranches have been tracking everything, monitoring everything from our soil health and changes over time, as well as the economics, just so we could put the whole story together,” Aljoe said.

For the past two years, Aljoe said the Noble Research Institute has been working toward developing instructionally designed education courses.

“With instructionally designed courses, it is truly about education, where they realize that a person only has about 15 to 20 minutes of a true attention span,” Aljoe said. “Let’s take that and have an interactive engagement at these tables where the participants are at, or let’s get them outside doing something that we are providing as the instruction. Let them actually experience it.”

There are two courses now available to ranchers through the Noble Research Institute: The Noble Land Essentials and The Noble Grazing Essentials.

Aljoe said the Land Essentials course focuses on soil health. It is a two-day, hands-on, in-person course that teaches individuals the tools needed to monitor and improve the health of their land, livestock, and livelihood.

Noble Grazing Essentials is a 3-day, hands-on, in-person course that teaches individuals the tools needed to quickly assess forage production and carrying capacity to design and implement grazing plans that work for their land and livestock.
