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 remarkable changes on the rangelands. Thanks to the entire Hibbard family for sharing your stewardship story!

Stewardship with Vision films are produced in partnership with Montana State University’s graduate program in Science & Natural History Filmmaking. Student film-makers in this program are required to have an undergraduate degree in the sciences. They are selected through an application process each semester, and promptly sent out on a ranch filming adventure unlike anything they're ever experienced.

Agua Es Vida

Based in Taos, New Mexico and focused on the Rio Fernando, this film begins up high in the Taos watershed and follows the water down into the Rio Fernando and through the acequia system that distributes water to farms and pastures throughout the community. The film then takes us on a journey through the community of farmers and ranchers who depend on the acequias for their livelihood and helps viewers understand acequias as a system of governance that, when well-attended and maintained, helps ensure a healthy community, healthy lands and sufficient water for all.
