Understanding the challenges ranchers face and the level of sophistication required to operate these complex biological systems in an economical and ecological sustainable fashion will go a long way to ensure that working ranches and large predators who share those landscapes can endure and thrive long-term. ~ Southern Oregon Rancher
By forwarding regenerative strategies that increases ranch resiliency, ethical husbandry, economic viability, and operational efficiency we in turn support healthier lands, water, and wildlife habitat while ensuring that ranch families can keep ranching for generations to come.
WC's comprehensive strategies include adaptive range management practices that focus on stockmanship, prescribed grazing, and increased understanding of predator biology and ecology.
Ranch Resiliency is the ability to hold multiple values and maintain a focus on long-term sustainability by growing the capacity across the land and people through strategic adaptive management approaches. This way you will be able to withstand the challenges and changes of time. ~ Hilary Anderson, Crazy D Ranch, Montana
A Sustainable Way Forward
Coexistence between predators and livestock has historically required continued output of resources in terms of time, energy, money, and physical equipment and tools. This one-way out pouring of resources is not sustainable as predator populations continue to increase. And the burden of cost and energy for predator coexistence practices often falls to the landowner. Working Circle focuses on a regenerative approach in which the strategies that we support has the potential to allow ranches to experience an equal if not more in return. Our goal is to not only reduce vulnerability in cattle to predation, but work to increase ranch resiliency.
