Guy Glosson, Holistic Management Certified Educator 

Guy Glosson has been repeatedly recognized for outstanding land stewardship and livestock handling has over 30 years of experience in ranch management, low-stress livestock handling and consulting to farmers and ranchers. Down to earth, with an engaging style, Guy has coached hundreds of people in his successful management methods. Under his holistic approach to land stewardship, he has enhanced the fertility and profitability of the ranch where he has been a manager for the past 26 years. In 2011, he was recognized for his success with the award for Outstanding Leadership in Ranching from the Quivira Coalition, an organization dedicated to bringing together ranchers, environmentalists, scientists and public land stewards in the American West. Mesquite Grove Ranch ranch, under Guy’s management, received the prestigious Lone Star Land Steward Award from Texas Parks and Wildlife.

Check out Guy working in Africa at this link: As one of the early Holistic Managers, he has implemented planned grazing to increase the biological health and productivity of the Mesquite Grove Ranch in TX. Guy attributes much of this success to excellent stockmanship. Many of Guy’s students have gone on to support the claims that good stockmanship is fundamental to land and animal health. Come to Socorro for a unique opportunity to meet and work with one of the all-time great stockmen, Guy Glosson.
