The following article, posted on the New Mexico Land Conservancy website, provides a short overview and history of Sid and Cheryl’s ranch.
Carrizo Valley Ranch
Carrizo Valley Ranch is located just north of Capitan on the eastern flanks of the Jicarilla Mountains in south-central New Mexico. Decades of watershed restoration, fire management, and careful rotational grazing have returned this ranch to a sustainable mix of native grass and woody plants supporting wildlife and range animals.
The property is a working cattle ranch with large areas of rangeland and summer pasture. It provides habitat for elk and mule deer, as well as pronghorn antelope, black bears, bald and golden eagles, bobcats and wild turkeys.
For more than a half-century, Sid Goodloe and his family have engaged in efforts to understand and rehabilitate watersheds and grasslands using controlled burning, rotational grazing, and other techniques. Mr. Goodloe lends his expertise to a number of organizations (including NMLC) who work in the areas of working land conservation and restoration. He has served as an international livestock consultant in Australia, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Brazil and other countries. Read full article on NMLC website.
