Farmers and Ranchers make so many sacrifices. Profits should not be one of them.


What if you could generate more wealth, improve your land, and achieve the

quality of life you and your family desire?


Joshua and Tara Dukart of Seek First Ranch believe ranchers, farmers and other agricultural professionals have a unique ability to improve soils, build healthy profits, and achieve their desired quality of life and relationships. They also know how challenging it can be to find the right balance when not all team members are pulling in the same direction, when prices are beyond our control, or when weather just won’t cooperate.


This school can help. It won't be a recipe or how-to guide, because every family and every operation is unique. Instead, it’s a decision-making framework and mindset that helps all team members find the clarity they need to create successful livelihoods.


Invite all your decision-makers & team members to participate!
