Kansas rancher writes books on regenerative farming methods
Thursday, April 16, 2020
For Dale Strickler, farming comes naturally, as does teaching. Having grown up tending cattle and driving a tractor on his family’s fields in Colony, Kansas, Strickler understands the prairie. He attended Kansas State University and received his bachelor and master’s degrees in agriculture and agronomy and lives in Belleville.
Strickler taught college classes and worked as an agronomist, all the while yearning to help farmers.
He said the idea for his first book, “The Drought Resilient Farm,” came in 2012 when he looked out and saw a contrast between two farms near his home.
