Range Rights Symposium to be held in Omaha
Whether you’re a rancher, farmer, logger, miner, hunter or someone who uses land in order to make a profit, you want your efforts to achieve the best possible results, which is the goal of a Range Rights and Resource Symposium planned for May 19-20, in Omaha, Neb., at Bellevue University Auditorium. The event is sponsored by National Federal Lands Conference and Protect the Harvest, and supported by Range Magazine. The publication works on behalf of producers who live and work on the land and is the recipient of four consecutive Freedom of the Press awards.
Seminar attendees will find two fast-paced days filled with information and networking with 23 experts who will provide practical solutions on the proper management of national and private resources — in a totally different perspective than private/government interaction and relationships of the past 50 years. It’s time to keep current, learn what’s working and helping others, while taking the time to receive relevant education and knowledge that is essential to maintaining and improving future success.
