        In 1988, beer maker conglomerate Anheuser-Busch purchased the Cabin Bar Ranch in California’s Sierra Nevada to obtain water rights that would insure a backup water supply for the company’s Van Nuys brewery. Associated with the ranch were public lands permits to graze cattle within the Golden Trout Wilderness, home to California’s state fish, the golden trout. Sierra Club member Todd Shuman describes his efforts from 1995 through 2000 to mobilize the Club and other organizations to protect the Golden Trout Wilderness from the damaging impacts of cattle owned by Anheuser-Busch. Recorded in August 2003. This video is an excerpt from Todd Shuman's interview in WESTERN TURF WARS: THE POLITICS OF PUBLIC LANDS RANCHING.

          Author Dan Dagget has touted the riparian habitat along the Gila River as it flows across the U Bar Ranch in southwestern New Mexico as possibly the healthiest in North America. The region is home to a flourishing population of Southwestern Willow Flycatchers as well as two species of threatened fish. In June 2001, the Quivira Coalition, an organization that promotes “sustainable ranching” held a weekend workshop in Silver City, NM, that included a tour of this riparian area. In this video, Mike Sauber, Gila Watch co-founder, recounts his experience of attending that workshop and the visit to the U Bar Ranch. He reveals that there’s more to the story of this healthy riparian area than ranching advocates have publicly acknowledged. This video is an excerpt from Mike Sauber’s interview in WESTERN TURF WARS: THE POLITICS OF PUBLIC LANDS RANCHING. See http://westernturfwars.com for information about the book.

Oman was raised on a Montana farm and went on to earn his bachelor's degree in forest management from the University of Montana. In 1986, after twenty-three years with the US Forest Service, he became district ranger on the Twin Falls Ranger District (Sawtooth National Forest, ID) where he found severe environmental damage caused by livestock.

                      The Montana cattle industry has waged a turf war against free-roaming bison on federal land since the 1980s, largely based on the claim that bison can infect cattle with brucellosis. Ralph Maughan, Idaho conservationist and professor emeritus of political science at Idaho State University, examines this claim within a broad cultural and political context. This video is an excerpt from a longer interview with Maughan, the complete transcript of which is contained in WESTERN TURF WARS: THE POLITICS OF PUBLIC LANDS RANCHING.
