In June of 2008, Frank Aragona and Noemi Castro of Agricultural Innovations traveled to Holistic Management International’s West Ranch learning site. Again in 2009 I had a chance to visit the ranch.
Located just outside of Ozona, in the heart of West Texas, the West Ranch is a prime example of the difficulties and opportunities ranchers face in this magnificent but rugged landscape.
The image gallery that follows is a selection of photos from these two visits. The imagery expresses many of the issues that land managers are confronted with in West Texas: oil and gas development, wildlife management, brush encroachment, and biological monitoring. Read more to view the images.
