Leopold Conservation Award Program - South Dakota 2018

South Dakota 2018 Cammack Ranch Union Center, SD Leopold Conservation Award Recipient

Cammack Ranch is owned and operated by State Senator Gary Cammack, and his wife, Amy. They raise beef cattle on 11,000 acres of grazing land in Meade County, where they have implemented rotational grazing practices, constructed windbreaks, and planted more than 30,000 trees. Their improvements have resulted in abundant wildlife, and healthy soil, grasslands and cattle.

“Our belief is that the health of range and the vitality of the wildlife population is a barometer of how well you’ll do in the ranching business,” said Sen. Cammack, a fourth-generation cattle producer.  

The Cammacks, who purchased their first land in 1978, operate Cammack Ranch Supply in Union Center. Their four grown sons all contribute to operation of the ranch.
