Crook County agricultural agent Gene Gade and UW agricultural economics spefialists will lead the workshops. Ranchers who attend will, during the workshop series, develop a comprehensive plan for their own ranches. They will take a good look at their existing operations. They'll set goals for the future of their families and ranches. They'll consider many factors during the planning pro- cess, from natural ecological processes, to economics, to the dozens of management options that are available.

Whether they only want a plan to guide their operations for the coming years, or whether they need something coherent to use in their dealings with lending institutions and agencies, I think this series of workshops will be of value to ranchers." The workshop series will use ideas and/or ranch planning materials from four western universities and other institu- tions as well as agricultural computer software from a number of sources. Gade was one of six Crook County residents who attended the Holistic Resot~rce Manage- ment {Savory} course last week in Rapid City. He said Allan Savory and the HRM folks have some important ideas about resource managemer.~ in general and ranch specifi- cally.

Ag mediation to get started Wyoming's new Agriculture Mediation Board is ready to offer its services to the state's agriculture community, Gov. Mike Sullivan says. The board was created by the Legislature earlier this year to help financially troubled farmers and ranchers work out their difficulties with their creditors. Farmers and ranchers need- ing help should contact the Agriculture Mediation Board through the State Attorney General's Office, State Capitol Building, Cheyenne, 82002. The board promulgated emergency rules last month detailing the qualifications and role of mediators and describing how the mediation process should be conducted. The goal, according to board chairman Paul Schwieger, is to help struggling agricultural producers work out their pro- blems with creditors without being forced into court or bank- ruptcy. The state has contracted with the Wyoming Rural Support Network to train mediators. Their duties include listening to both borrowers and creditors, advising them of available pro- grams and attempting to mediate and encouraging them to resolve disagreements short of court action through such steps as refinancing and adjust- ing of debts or providing for payment. The board requires that all' requests for mediation by made in writing through the attorney general's office, with names and addresses of all parties involved and sufficient infor- matiop to insure that the situa- tion meets with requirements of the law. No mediation sessions will be scheduled until all parties agree to mediation, and mediators will not be able to force a settle- ment.
