Barber County is located in South Central Kansas bordering
Oklahoma. Encompassing more than 11,000 square miles,
our grassland, in the western half of the county, with its
rugged, scenic terrain known as the “Gyp Hills,” is where Ted
Turner’s latest ranch acquisition is located. The eastern half
of the county holds the population centers. The population is
well educated with a strong work ethic.
The economy is primarily agricultural being home to one of the
largest cow/calf operations in the state and many wheat
Medicine Lodge is home to National Gypsum, the largest
employer in the area, deriving its business by mining gypsum
and manufacturing wallboard. Local trucking companies haul
their products and the majority come home empty, suggesting
extremely competitive back haul rates for materials being

in the nation is located in Kiowa and is another major employer.

Oil and gas production also provides a vital part of our economy.
