‘Outstanding Project’

At its annual meeting Feb. 16 in Alexandria, the WesMin Resource Conservation and Development Council recognized as Outstanding Project a seminar hosted by Central Lakes College in Staples. The Steve Kenyon Year-Round Grazing System seminar held Jan. 19-11, 2010 at CLC, Staples, was honored for drawing more than 100 participants as well as partnering businesses and agencies. The effort included funding and manpower contributions in order to make the workshop a great success, said Dean Schmidt, WesMin coordinator. The three-day seminar included a talk by Kenyon, who runs a custom grazing business in Alberta, Canada, and a final day of hands-on, intensive work with experts. A non-profit, federally funded agency, WesMin is the oldest program of 375 created by Congress through the vision of President John F. Kennedy (since 1964) and serves 14 counties — Becker, Clay, Douglas, Grant, Pope, Todd, Wadena, Wilkin, Cass, Crow Wing, Ottertail, Morrison, Stevens, and Traverse. The council’s mission is “to develop human and natural resources through cooperative efforts.” Among those recognized were Barb Cline (pictured) and Mike Sams of the Staples campus, Central Lakes College.
