Sustainable Ranching

Sustainable ranching has become one of the most talked about initiatives among the Northern Great Plains ranchers and community. 
They have partnered with the WWF to help preserve the over 94 million acres of grassland and its micro-habitats. 
With keeping these habitats in good standing they are able to sustain many amazing attributes of the land:

-Carbon-Rich Soil
-Less fertilizer run-off
-Cleaner Streams

Ranchers maintain the lands and attempt to keep the land as natural and lush as possible; considering more federal laws and technology show financial gain in turning the land into crops.   

Along with WWF’s message ranchers are using more sustainable grazing methods to keep predatory plants from taking over the lands and its resources.
