New Mexico Grazing Study Shows Adaptive Management is GREAT for your Bottom Line!
Ranchers' livelihoods depend on maintaining animal productivity, ranch profitability and healthy soils and plants in highly variable environments. Having the knowledge and flexibility to adaptively manage in the face of change can determine whether managers meet these goals. This grazing management case-study by WLA's Rick Danvir is a must-read for all managers.
Stewardship with Vision - Episode 7: San Juan Ranch
This latest Western Landowners Alliance film by filmmaker Jason Roehrig features Colorado cattle ranchers George Whitten and Julie Sullivan, whose stewardship has restored and increased healthy biological processes while providing for a sustainable ranching model. Decades of careful attention to soil porosity, plant composition and soil cover has resulted in healthy land yielding a consistent level of productivity even in times of severe drought. Take a pause in your day to view this 9-minute film, and let us know what you think!
In Support of Public Lands
As landowners and ranchers who own and manage deeded and leased public lands across the West, we oppose HR621 and HR622. The blanket sale of federal lands poses the risk of putting those who ranch or depend on public lands out of business, undermining our local economics, and diminishing opportunities for our citizens to interact with wild, intact, natural places, thereby lessening the connection (and associated learning and understanding) needed to sustain them.
