Utah Ranch Improves Wetland Areas by Controlling Invasive Species

JY Ferry & Son Ranch in northern Utah has been in the Ferry family since 1869 and is currently a 4th generation ranch. The ranch is located on a wetland area which contains an invasive species called phragmites. While traditionally this weed is treated with herbicides, JY Ferry & Son discovered that they could control the weed through cattle grazing. Keeping this plant controlled allows other wildlife to thrive in the area including ducks and geese. Through these efforts, the ranch has proven that cattle can help improve wetland areas, working to contribute to a more sustainable future. For their sustainability efforts, the JY Ferry & Son Ranch was awarded the prestigious Environmental Stewardship Award (ESAP).

"Sustainability is a process and what I do tomorrow will be affected by what I do today. But if you’re wise and listen to the land, it will tell you what to do." - John Ferry
