Taos Pueblo WarChief Approves Ranch Advisory’s Buffalo Study

Posted on: May 29, 2014

The WarChief of the Taos Pueblo Tribe in northern New Mexico recently approved the buffalo feasibility study written by Ranch Advisory Partners to expand buffalo into a large tract of land west of Taos.  The WarChief's office is responsible for oversight of the reservation's natural resources.  Ranch Advisory worked through the InterTribal Buffalo Council of Rapid City, SD to help the Taos Pueblo assess the opportunity of expanding buffalo into this new pasture.  The pasture is home to bighorn sheep, elk, and deer, and the tribe seeks to add buffalo to the mix of species roaming this landscape.  We helped the tribe determine proper stocking rates, means of improving vegetative condition to increase stocking rates, infrastructure required (corrals, fences, water developments, roads), and created the financial statements describing operating margins and asset management.  The WarChief's office recenlty accepted and approved Ranch Advisory's feasibility study and can now begin the process of moving buffalo to a new home.  We wish them well in their endeavors.
