MANNIX RANCH: PARTNERSHIPS IN RANCHING AND LAND STEWARDSHIP
HELMVILLE, MT | THURSDAY, SEPT 23RD
TIME 10AM-4PM MT | TOUR CAPACITY : 70
ABOUT THE FIELD DAY
The Mannix Ranch is a fifth generation family cattle ranch in Montana’s Blackfoot Valley. They will be sharing their journey in ranching and land stewardship; including work with crucial partners, business succession planning, and trying to keep more people on the land and in rural communities. Come join them and several of their partners, including the Blackfoot Challenge and Ole’ Salt, to discuss topics such as drought resilience and the agricultural chain of production. Working with other groups that share similar land values has made stewarding their land possible, and they would love to share their experiences.
ABOUT MANNIX RANCH
Since the establishment of the Mannix ranch in 1882, the Mannix family has called this ranch in the Blackfoot valley home. But rather than the true “owners” of this land, they consider themselves the stewards of the soil, streams, grass, timber, and wildlife that belong to this ecosystem. The land is the lifeblood of their community, and they strive to be worthy caretakers of those resources that fall under our management.
Drawing on the agricultural tradition of the past, Mannix Ranch strives to continually improve their stewardship methods for today. Managing land and livestock together in such a way that both animal and ecosystem flourish will continue to provide a healthy ecosystem supporting diverse wildlife, a good living for their family, good food for their customers, and contribute to the long term health of the community.
