The awards were presented to two sisters, according to a story posted today by the Rio Blanco Herald Times.
One of them, executive director of the White River and Douglas Creek Conservation Districts, speaks about the impact of wild horses in this video by Protect the Harvest, a cheerleader group for the public-lands ranchers.
The other, a steward of the public lands and president of the Colorado Cattlemen’s Association, operates a cattle ranch near Fruita, CO.
The Operator Information and Allotment Information reports in RAS tie the ranch to the North Fork Kannah Creek and Whitewater Common allotments.
The Allotment Master report puts both of them in the Improve category.
