BLAIR FAMILY

SOUTH DAKOTA RANCH HONORED FOR OUTSTANDING ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

Blair Brothers Angus Ranch is a family-owned operation focused on embracing conservation practices that enhance soil, water, livestock and wildlife. The Blairs’ commitment to conservation has allowed them to implement progressive change. Through strategic planning, the ranch has succeeded on many levels including investing in rotational grazing infrastructure of fencing and water pipelines; operating a short-duration rotational grazing plan addressing forage, livestock and wildlife needs; investing in preconditioning protocols and utilizing low-stress cattle handling methods; pursuing the use of vegetative treatment areas for nutrient management in their feedlot system; and treating all leased pastures as if they were their own while educating landowners on how to utilize conservation methods to better manage their grass, land and water.


 “Through water development and rotational grazing practices they promote healthy livestock, wildlife and soil."
