This forum highlighting leading women in ranching operations was recorded Feb 20, 2020 at the National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado as part of the Society for Range Management annual meeting. The speakers included women from non-traditional ranching backgrounds as well as women whose families have been in the ranching business for several generations. The speakers provide a breadth of perspective as to what ranching is and why women are critical to the mission of sustainable ranches. This list is certainly not comprehensive of all the qualified women, but a group who carry the flag for all those who are instrumental in their ranch operations. Speakers were: Mary Budd Flitner, Wyoming rancher-- "Betting It All " Ashley Hibbard, Montana rancher--"Impostor syndrome". Starts at 19:25. Julie Sullivan, Colorado rancher--"Hippie Meets Rancher". Starts at 40:30. Nancy Ranney, New Mexico rancher--"Regenerative Ranching in Mesa Country". Starts at 1:04:35. Mimi Hillenbrand, South Dakota bison rancher. (With apologies to Mimi, we’ve not included this talk because recording quality was poor and listening would depend on seeing the accompanying video). The session was coordinated and facilitated by Pat Pfeil, a Florida rancher. WE NEED YOUR FEEDBACK!
