Episode 6: Moore Land & Cattle Company

Through years of carefully planned and implemented prescribed fire, Greg Moore was able to push back on juniper encroachment of grasslands on his northern New Mexico ranch and re-establish healthy grassland ecosystems for cattle and wildlife alike. He also restored wetlands on his land for the benefit of beavers and other wildlife, has released antelope on his land and is now working with state and federal agencies to reintroduce the black-footed ferret on his ranch in 2018. This 8-minute film was produced in partnership with Moore Land & Cattle Co near WagonMound, New Mexico.
