Getting increases in Soil Carbon, and potentially getting land enrolled in some of the soil carbon sequestration programs, to bring in some diversified farm income.

I mentioned ensuring there is enough access to water per head of cattle in the acreage grazed.

with respect to walking with the local NRCS agent... The NRCS agent also knows about opportunities that can help the land and the land-owners. there are numerous federal and private sector opportunities. they also have an RCPP program that allows a local group (like a land trust or a Soil and Water Conservation District) to manage the UDSDA funds and have a stronger say in how these USDA funds get spent in the local area.

there are lots of great conferences for regenerative farmers and ranchers to provide peer to peer and farmer to farmer information sharing. pay for the landowner to attend one of these.
Alex
01:28:35
Are lease types where you get a bonus for certain gain in addition to per head payment very common?
john
01:30:01
Do folks usually lease land on a per head basis? Seems you're penalized for improving carrying capacity
Alex
01:31:37
For taxes, are contract graziers/land stewards, independent contractors usually?
Scott H. Beene
01:31:44
Why would you not negotiate a multi-year lease at a fixed price per acre per year so that you are invested in managing the land to improve it and keep the costs a "Fixed Cost" as opposed a "Variable Costs"?
Scott H. Beene
01:38:07
Typical Midwest Land Leases are between $13 - $20 per acre per year. At this rate, you could lease 500 acres for less than $6,000 per year with a 7-10 year lease. This is much more economical and provides for excellent cash flow and allows you to generate revenue by custom grazing other's cattle. Just an idea to consider.
Noelle McDonough
01:45:11
can the AUM fluctuate throughout the lease. Especially for finishing animals
Noelle McDonough
01:46:49
Yes THanks!’
andrea B
01:55:17
will there be any discussion around contracts with municipalities or cities in an urban context?
andrea B
01:56:53
thank you!
Amy Erickson
01:58:06
FYI - if you lease land you are eligible for cost-share assistance from NRCS as long as you have a written lease and permission from the landowner. It can pay for things like fencing, water development, deferred grazing, etc.
Joel Rausch
02:00:37
How far would you consider to far to travel to a lease

speaking of resiliency on Tribal lands, Look at the Santa Clara Pueblo and the many millions of dollars FEMA is spending on increasing resiliency. There may be a way to tap into these funds for resilient agriculture in the west.
