We’d like to congratulate President and CEO of The Dixon Water Foundation and HMI Board Member, Robert Potts, and Board Chair of the Dixon Water Foundation and former HMI Board Member, Clint Josey on The Dixon Water Foundation receiving the 2017 Leopold Conservation Award.
With five working ranches owned and managed by the foundation, they have worked hard to fulfill their mission to promote healthy watersheds through sustainable land management to ensure that future generations have the water resources they need.
The ranches use Holistic planned grazing, which enables ranchers to manage land, animals, and wildlife so that during growing months the land can produce the maximum amount of high quality forage on an increasing or sustained basis; and in non-growing months there is adequate forage and/or cover for livestock and wildlife. Planned grazing also offers additional benefits such as better water absorption and an increase in wildlife.
Be sure to check out The Sand County Foundation for more information on the award. For more information on The Dixon Water Foundation, take a look at this short video.
Once again we congratulate Robert, Clint, and The Dixon Water Foundation on receiving this award. For more information on Holistic Planned Grazing or Holistic Management, check out our website today!
