Ranch Advisory Assists Fort Belknap Tribe with Buffalo Expansion
Posted on: Dec 12, 2014
Ranch Advisory has been contracted to assist Montana's Fort Belknap Tribe expand its existing buffalo herds for improved ecological performance, financial performance, and for greater use of buffalo by tribal members. Working in collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund, Ranch Advisory will conduct a feasibility study to determine carryiing capacity of the tribe's herd on its various buffalo pastures. A herd and land management plan will then be designed to balance the ecological performance of the land with the biological needs of the buffalo, as well as the cultural and financial needs of the tribe.
