Pape Ranches honored for stewardship
by Wyoming Business Daily
July 21, 2009

(Daniel) Pape Ranches was among seven beef farms and ranches selected as regional winners of the 2009 Environmental Stewardship Awards, presented each year by The National Cattlemen's Beef Association and The National Cattlemen's Foundation and is sponsored by Dow AgroSciences and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Resources Conservation Service.. The awards were given this week in Denver at the Cattle Industry Summer Conference. A national winner will be selected from the regional winners and will be announced in January at the 2010 Cattle Industry Annual Convention and NCBA Trade Show in San Antonio.

Regional recipients of the Environmental Stewardship Award serve as a model for others seeking to improve and protect the environment.

"The seven regional winners come from all parts of the beef industry and country," said Dave Petty, chairman of the Environmental Stewardship Award selection committee and the 2001 national award winner. "They are outstanding examples of how the people who provide consumers with nutritious and delicious beef are earning a reputation as everyday environmentalists. They are proof that conservation can be as good for business as it is for the environment."

The Pape Ranches in Daniel is an operation with more than 10,000 acres of rangeland and irrigated hay where Hereford Angus crossbred cattle are raised. The ranch was nominated by the Wyoming Stock Growers Association.
