"Of all the questions which can come before this nation, …, there is none which compares in importance with the great central task of leaving this land even a better land for our descendants than it is for us."
- Theodore Roosevelt
Which side of the fence would you rather own?
100th Meridian Ranching (left side of fence) manages grazing to grow more grass and leaves more residue for soil protection. We accomplish this by allowing full recovery of plants versus others (right side of fence) that continuously graze and give no or little time for plant recovery time. In these comparisons, overall ranch stocking rate is virtually the same, but our grazing management allows for increased rangeland health for our pastures on the left.
