As landowners and managers, we recognize that working lands are the cornerstones of our rural communities and our ecosystems, supporting livelihoods, local economies and wildlife. We know these things to be interdependent and that the well-being of one affects the well-being of the others. We also know from experience the many challenges inherent in land ownership and management.

Episode 8: Berlier Ranch

2019.07 SwvV Ep 8

This WLA film by Evangeline Koonce features New Mexico rancher Jim Berlier. Through prescribed grazing that provides adequate pasture recovery time, strategic stocking rates, drought planning and brush removal, the Berlier Ranch has experienced significant increases in plant and wildlife diversity, making the ranch more sustainable and profitable.

Episode 6: Moore Cattle Co.

2019.07 SwV Ep 6

Through years of carefully planned and implemented prescribed fire, Greg Moore was able to push back on juniper encroachment of grasslands on his northern New Mexico ranch and re-establish healthy grassland ecosystems for cattle and wildlife alike. He has also restored wetlands, released antelope, and recently reintroduced the threatened black-footed ferret on his land.

As a result of the O’Dell Creek restoration, Granger Ranches has documented a 900% increase in waterfowl species and a 600% increase in species diversity. The ranch now hosts at least fifteen species of concern. The wetlands are also supporting river otters, moose, deer, and rare and sensitive flowers.

"We are taking ourselves too seriously if we think we own it... maybe the land owns us. Maybe instead of a deed it should be a license, like a marriage license, where we can continue as long as we are nurturing each other."
