(Buffalo, Wyo.) — The Wyoming Beef Council has selected the Fieldgrove Ranch
located near Buffalo, to be featured on Wyoming Beef Council
and in upcoming marketing efforts.
"Featuring the Fieldgrove Ranch helps tell the story of beef production, as
well as showing how seriously ranchers care for the land and their
livestock," said Ann Wittmann, Wyoming Beef Council executive director.
"According to Beef Checkoff research, our target audience of millennial
parents want to know where their beef come from and they are interested in
hearing about real ranching stories from the West."
The Fieldgroves keep a balanced eye on conservation and profitability as
their cattle, sheep and goats graze on their ranch located at the foot of
the beautiful Bighorn Mountains.
They have created a strong conservation plan that has improved their land
for wildlife and livestock alike. With the help of the National Resource
Conservation Service, Conservation Districts, Farm Services of American,
Wyoming Weed and Pest and others, they have implemented programs to improve
fencing, weed control, wildlife and livestock habitat, and water access.
“I believe that any conservation practice should be sustainable,” says Ryan
Fieldgrove, whose family has ranched in the area for over 130 years. “Since
most of us hope to be profitable on an ongoing basis, we must take care of
our grass and water.”
The Wyoming Beef Council features Wyoming producers on its website and in
its marketing efforts as a means of introducing the millennial target
consumer in the United States to the ranchers and farmers who produce
nutritious, wholesome and delicious beef. Click here
