2012 Alberta Beef Producers Environmental Stewardship Award
This past summer we were nominated for the Alberta Beef Producers Environmental Stewardship Award. In August a selection committee of 5 ABP members and staff came to our ranch and spent the day touring the pastures, forests, creeks and cows to see what Spirit View Ranch was all about. They came to see how we manage our pastures, look after our soils and water resources and in general how we look after our environmental impact of beef production. After our ranch the selection committee continued on to tour other ranches in Alberta. Three days later we were called and notified that we were selected as the recipients for the 2012 award. The award would be presented in December but before that they wanted to have a film crew come out and do a mini documentary about Spirit View Ranch. In September the crew showed up on a beautiful fall day and thsi is the result. We are very honored and proud of this award and look forward to being ambassadors for the environment and the beef this province produces.
