The Bluestem Pasture Survey is used to collect information on Bluestem pasture use and practices. The survey asks about pasture availability, leasing rates, and fencing rates. Your response is important in providing reliable, accurate information to not only Kansas ranchers, but also to the agricultural community as a whole.

Respondents will be entered into a drawing for paid registration to the 2017 Risk and Profit Conference in Manhattan, Kansas, approximately a $200 value. Response to this survey is voluntary, and your response will be kept confidential. The survey only takes about 15 minutes to complete. Only aggregate data will be used  for research. Please complete the survey by May 1, 2017. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at or the Center at 785-532-3509.
