Long-time Client Wins National Excellence in Rangeland Stewardship Award

Posted on: Feb 13, 2014

The Society for Range Management awarded Wyoming's Ucross Ranch its prestigious 2014 National Excellence in Rangeland Stewardship Award in Orlando, FL yesterday. The award is given annually to a ranch demonstrating exceptional improvements in rangeland performance. Ucross won the State of Wyoming Award in 2012 and advanced to win the national competition yesterday. Each competing state is required to submit a poster in the national competition and present that poster to judges. The photo below shows Doug O'Neil and Nathan Lindsey of Ucross Ranch standing in front of their poster in Orlando.

Ucross altered its grazing management strategy several years ago and has greatly improved pasture performance as a result. As examples, bare ground has fallen from 50% in some pastures to nearly zero today. Some ephemeral streams have become perennial streams. Plant productivity has tripled or quadrupled over most pastures, and stocking rate has more than doubled. Further, wildlife habitat for big game, upland birds, and waterfowl has improved.

Ranch Advisory is proud to have worked with the management team at Ucross Ranch for over a decade in designing grazing operations and monitoring improvements in rangeland health. Big congratulations go to the whole Ucross team!

Look for further news posts describing the improvements at Ucross.
