Turner Ranch Tour

Louie Petrie Ranch + Kimmel Ranch
Presented by RSA’s Beginning Rancher Committee

Join the Ranchers Stewardship Alliance as we learn from our neighbors in Turner, Montana. As part of RSA’s mission to be life-long learners, we believe that we learn a lot from professionals, but also that we learn just as much, if not more, spending time with our fellow producers and neighbors who are facing similar challenges and opportunities as ourselves. Gather, learn, observe, and dive into great conversation with the great folks at the Louie Petrie Ranch and the Kimmel Ranch in Turner, Montana! You won’t want to miss this!

This event is free for participants – we want everyone there who wants to be there! If you’d like to donate, we are suggesting $40 per person to help cover related event costs. Thank you for your support in Ranching, Conservation, and Communities!
