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!
