Ag Law & Lease Workshop planned in Salina
Leasing land to hunters and livestock owners plus fencing laws are among topics.


MINNEAPOLIS, Kan. - Agriculture landscapes and outdoor enjoyment are two of Kansas’ most endearing traits. From pastures to fields to river bottoms, Kansas land yields an abundance of resources and recreational opportunities.

Renters, landowners, and recreational land users are invited to attend the Central Kansas Extension District Ag Law and Lease Workshop on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at the K-State Polytechnic Conference Center. The program is designed for anyone who wants to know more about agricultural leasing and related laws.

Forrest Buhler, Kansas Agricultural Mediation Services staff attorney, will discuss Kansas laws on renting pastures and cropland, as well as laws related to fencing laws, including working through considerations with neighbors, landlords and tenants.

Through his work with KAMS, Buhler consults with farmers and ranchers throughout the state in helping them explore options and generate solutions through mediation with respect to agricultural issues and disputes.

Whether interested in leasing out property as a big buck haven or sharing the landscape with outdoor enthusiasts, participants will benefit from attorney Nate Gilbert’s presentation on the ins and outs of leasing land for recreational purposes. Gilbert, a central Kansas native, specializes in hunting, wildlife, and multiuse land leases across Kansas and Colorado from small scale to wide open spaces. He was one of the most requested and popular talks from last year’s extension programming.

The Ag Law & Lease Workshop, sponsored by the K-State Research and Extension Central Kansas Extension District will be Tuesday, Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the K-State Polytechnic College Conference Center, 2310 Centennial Road in Salina. The cost is $15 per person or $20 per couple with a complimentary lunch included. To RSVP call 785-392-2147 or email anruiz@ksu.edu by Nov. 30.
