We believe that a savanna type ranching landscape will serve us well. Our ranching unit has lots of riparian river and developed upland water sites, plus rugged slopes and many treed areas of some density on north facing slopes followed by savanna type pastures and open grazing fields; benefiting both wildlife and our livestock. Utilization of Ranch raised pleasure horses for our ranch work annually. Maintaining a healthy herd of wild ungulates, at healthy levels to reflect their share of grazing capacity of the “the Ranch”. Crossbred Beef Cattle featuring both Beef Booster and Super Cross herd sires and performance selected cows/heifers. Energetic cattle dogs to guide the herds and a barn cat to entertain the horses and scare the mice.
In 2006 we assessed our overall ranching management and operation and decided that we should become involved in the Environmental Farm Planning process sponsored by the BC Ministry of Agriculture and administered by the BC Agricultural Council. By early 2007 we had completed a comprehensive and approved Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) for our Ranch.
With the belief that it was helpful in maintaining sound ecological processes, in 2011 we revitalized our EFP and updated it under the ARD Corp guidelines. Having an up to date EFP also helps us qualify for the Best Management Practices funding via the federal governments "Growing Forward Program".
