Congratulations go to Black Leg Ranch of McKenzie, ND. The ranch was named national 2016 winner of the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award Program (ESAP) for its commitment to protecting America’s natural resources in a flourishing operation. Jamie was on hand to talk with Jerry Doan, family member, about their operation.
Dow Agrosciences, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and the National Cattlemen’s Foundation are sponsors of the award which was presented last week during the Cattle Industry Convention.
Wondering about the name of the ranch? I was but here’s the answer. Homesteaded in 1882, the ranch was named for the Angus cattle that were imported to stock it. These were some of the first Angus imported to the United States.
