Colorado Springs, CO –June 19, 2014- Colorado Cattlemen’s Association has bestowed an honorary life membership on Dr. Jack Whittier, Ph.D. during the 2014 Protein Producer Summit.


Jack Whittier has served the beef industry exceptionally well as a professor and Extension Beef Specialist for Colorado State University. His passion for teaching and mentoring young producers is unequalled. He has spent his career promoting agriculture, and specifically the beef industry, to countless students. Additionally, Whittier has committed his time and resources to provide outreach to, and involvement in, Colorado’s beef-producing community.

Whittier joined the faculty of the Animal Science Department at Colorado State University in February of 1995. During his tenure, he held joint appointments with extension and research; allowing him to meet the needs of cattle producers and students. Much of his research has dealt with reducing costs associated with producing beef through improved use of forage management.
Whittier has served in a very important capacity on the Colorado Ranching Legacy Program which serves to educate new ranchers, and helps them to become successful in many areas of the beef-production industry.

Dr. Whittier has been very active in Colorado Cattlemen’s Association, serving as speaker in committees, on educational panels, and as a long-time participant in the Beef Improvement committee. He has recently accepted the position of Research and Extension Director for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Panhandle Research and Extension Center and Panhandle Extension District. Colorado Cattlemen’s Association appreciates his many years of leadership and proudly honors Dr. Jack Whittier as an honorary life member.

Colorado Springs, CO –June 16, 2014– The Turkey Creek Ranch owned and operated by Gary and Georgia Walker received the 2014 Colorado Leopold Conservation Award this week during the 2014 Protein Producer Summit. The Pueblo-based ranch consists of approximately 65,000 deeded acres, managed for both wildlife and livestock.

The acts of cattle ranching and wildlife management go hand in hand and the life’s work of the Walkers proves it. Under an agreement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, they re-introduced Black Footed Ferrets, which were once thought to be extinct, in eastern Colorado. “The Walkers balance a love of the land and a dedication to preserving wildlife with cattle ranching.” stated Gene Manuello, President of the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association. “The fourteen years of sustained drought have put unfathomable pressure on producers in southeastern Colorado; the Walker’s forethought and planning included the installation of pipelines, water storage tanks and stock ponds which have played an integral part in the long-term viability of the Turkey Creek Ranch as a home to livestock and wildlife.”

Given in honor of renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold, the Leopold Conservation Award recognizes private landowner achievement in voluntary conservation. The Walkers received a $10,000 cash prize and a crystal depicting Aldo Leopold. Presented annually by the Sand County Foundation, the award recognizes private landowner achievement in voluntary conservation. It inspires landowners through these examples and provides a visible forum where farmers, ranchers and other private landowners are recognized as conservation leaders. Colorado Cattlemen’s Association and Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust are presenting partners of the award in Colorado.

04-09-14 Ranching and a West That Works, Free Seminar at CSU April 24-25…

Posted by Brian Allmer on April 9, 2014

Header - Please enable images in your e-mail programFORT COLLINS – A free two-day conference focused on issues of ranching, land use, and sustainability will be held at Colorado State University’s Lory Student Theater on April 24- 25.

The Ranching and a West That Works conference is designed for a diverse audience – from students to families to business owners – who are encouraged to attend and learn from speakers who will explore ranching’s connections to water, food, sustainable grazing, public-private partnerships, livelihoods, rural economies and much more.

Ranching can build bridges between rural and urban communities through the twin connections of open space and food. Across the American West, ranching accounts for a majority of land use, both on private and on public lands. In fact, close to half of the private lands that surround our public lands belong to ranchers that graze livestock on public lands. There is a tight coupling of this land use that protects open space but also produces an important food item. This event will explore these connections and start important dialogue about new ideas for the future of ranching.

To RSVP for the conference contact Kellie.Clark@colostate.edu. For more information, visit www.coopext.colostate.edu/WR/ranchingcsu.shtml.
