Dogleg Ranch

Bandera, Texas

After acquiring the land, we first set out to control the Juniper growth which had overtaken about 60% of the ranch. The primary method of clearing the Junipers was through the use of hydraulic cedar shears attached to a skid-steer. When the shearing was done, the Junipers were stacked into piles which we burned off. Since then, we try to maintain a balance of native grasses  and woody plants. Rotational grazing, low stocking rates, supplemental feeding, and prescribed fire are just a few ways we strive to be good stewards of the land.
