Learn about a win-win climate solution for ranchers.
Growing up on a ranch in Eastern Oregon, Dan Probert did all of the things other ranching kids did, such as joining 4H and the Future Farmers of America, to learn about the livestock business. However, when he first started ranching on his own, he had a sense that to be profitable and sustainable, he needed to question traditional methods of ranching. This eventually led him to The Nature Conservancy (TNC). In 2017, Dan and his wife Suzy agreed to, in effect, sell the carbon in the soil on their Lightning Creek Ranch to TNC with a conservation easement.
