Bob's Sustainable Ranching Story, Wyoming
Bob Taylor, with the help of his wife Maggie and their daughter, Marisa, raise organic, grass fed, Black Angus beef cattle on Lonetree Ranch in Lonetree, Wyoming. An accomplished veterinarian (and one time host and focus of Animal Planet's Emergency Vet), Bob spends about 365 days a year applying a blend of art and science to the task of managing their land and animals in a way that considers the preservation of natural resources and protects natural ecosystems. "Because we believe it is the right thing to do, and because it is the best business practice for a sustainable future."
