The Dixon Water Foundation utilizes Holistic Planned Grazing to bring back the tallgrass prairie at the Leo Ranch near Dallas, providing appropriate disturbance to improve the health of the grasslands they manage. And they work to do it in such a way that they can make a profit. In doing so, they show other ranchers that good stewardship should result in a thriving business as good work must be paid for if it is to be sustainable.
An article about the effect that the Dixon Water Foundation’s planned grazing has had on improving wildlife habitat was also featured in the Texas Wildlife Association’s magazine. The Dixon Water Foundation ranches are run to be profitable from both cattle sales and hunting leases. Good grazing can improve soil health and wildlife habitat which improves wildlife counts and quality that can improve the bottom lines for these ranches.
