SDARL graduates have been featured in stories on local television programs recently. Kurt Zuehlke (SDARL VII), pictured above, was the focus of a story on drought and personal challenges facing farmers and Kurt’s family specifically. You can watch the story HERE.


The July 11 AgWeek TV program featured two SDARL graduates. Brian and Jamie Johnson (SDARL VIII), above left, recently held a field day with the South Dakota Soil Health Coalition, sharing information about their years of carbon sequestration and conservation farming. That same program included a video segment on Adam Ehlers (SDARL IX), above right, and his innovative remote control grain bin fan system. You can see the entire July 11 AgWeek TV program HERE.

Tanse Herrmann (SDARL X) was featured in a television segment on soil conservation on KNBN TV. Tanse has assumed the role of South Dakota NRCS State Grazinglands Soil Health Specialist. He is working from Rapid City, but has soil health responsibilities throughout the state.  Tanse is charged with education/outreach activities regarding soil health topics to groups, organizations, students, producers, partner entities, and others, in addition to responsibilities for staff and conservation partner training.  You can view the TV segment HERE.
