Mediation Program

Mediation helps parties resolve disputes in a way that is voluntary, confidential, low-cost and time-saving. 

A trained mediator helps the parties explore options and develop mutually agreed upon solutions. The mediator does not act as a judge, deciding who is right or wrong. The parties control the result of the mediation and any agreement that is developed. Mediation is another tool to help agricultural producers and natural resource managers make wise decisions. The Wyoming Agriculture & Natural Resource Mediation Program can assist in a wide variety of issues including:

  • Ag credit issues
  • Neighbor/neighbor conflicts
  • Farm/ranch transition discussions
  • USDA adverse decisions (FSA, NRCS, RD, RMA)
  • Lease issues (land and equipment)
  • USFS grazing permit disputes
  • Organic certification appeals
  • Ag business disputes
  • Pesticides
  • and more!

If you are involved in a conflict and wondering if mediation is right for you, please contact Lucy Pauley
