In 2018, we began a systemic weed mitigation plan that set out to eliminate the noxious weeds on the Ranch. First, we chose a 60- acre section of the Ranch that was particularly infected with weeds. Then, we worked with Douglas County experts to diagnose the species of plants on the property, and to draft a prescription for eliminating said species.
We identified 5 different species of noxious weeds, and then set out to eradicate them. Removing these invasive weeds is vital to the health of fields and to the quality of any harvested hay bales.
