About the Project

The Prairie Project is a collaboration between research, teaching, and extension faculty from Texas A&M, Oklahoma State University, and University of Nebraska. Together with ranchers, teachers and students from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska we are learning and sharing our knowledge from the most current research and management experience to tackle the problems of woody plant encroachment, more extreme climate, and increasing wildfire. Our goal is to not only maintain livestock production but increase it while simultaneously providing the vital ecosystem services the Southern Great Plains provide.
