Stewardship with Vision, Episode 9: Sieben Live Stock Company

Sieben Live Stock Company is a family owned and operated ranch in north central Montana which raises cattle and sheep. The Hibbard family believes proper grazing techniques can improve overall land health. Their practices include high density grazing with cattle herds, allowing adequate time to rest – which has ultimately led to some remarkable changes on the rangelands. Thanks to the entire Hibbard family for sharing your stewardship story!

Aspen trees and forests are especially important in the Rocky Mountains. Aspens add beauty to landscapes, foster high diversity and productivity of understory plants, provide for the habitat needs of many species of animals, and moderate fire behavior. The Aspen Next Generation project aimed to foster the future of aspen by pulling together insights from landowners, agency personnel, and scientists across southern Colorado and northern New Mexico.
