Ever wonder what transpires at a ranch and reform conference, but lacked the chance to see for yourself? Now, you can: "Ranching West of the 100th Meridian," a landmark conference held at Colorado State University, is available on four 50-minute videos.
For three days in spring 2000, conferees
chewed the cud about ranching in the West. Some liked ranchers and
ranching; some didn't. In the end, though, most agreed that the
preservation of ranching is critical to slowing sprawl and keeping
public land well-managed across public-private property lines.
Introduced by wildlife biologists Rick Knight
and Wendell Gilgert, the videos cover public and private land
stewardship, the ecological impacts of ranching and the culture of
ranching in the West, and conclude by discussing how ranching can
survive in a global economy.
Videos are $12 each
