Sandhills Stewards Coordinator
Sandhills Task Force
Ty Walker has been a Sandhills native for most of his life. With the exception of a few college years at EWC in Torrington Wyoming and some time shortly after working on ranches in Wyoming and Montana, Ty has called the Sandhills home. He grew up on family ranches near Arthur, and later leased and ran his own ranching operation there as well. Ty has served in a wide variety of roles in production (beef) agriculture. The experiences ranging from growing up on hay crews, and riding colts in his high school years, to working in feed yards and sale barns to get through college, and having worked as the lowest ranch hand for big and small outfits, to managing his own operation as well as serving as a manager for others have all served to shape his knowledge of the Sandhills. Ty believes the best way to help protect the Sandhills is to make sure that the individual landowners have successful and enjoyable businesses and is excited to be in a position where he can help serve his fellow Sandhills producers.
