Dennis Sun, Casper, Wyoming: Ranching with Hundreds of Sage Grouse

July 29, 2013

Dennis Sun, owner of the Sun Ranch west of Casper, Wyo., and publisher/owner of the Wyoming Livestock Roundup, knows sage grouse better than most people. After all, he has more than 600 wintering grouse on the ranch, and one breeding lek where more than 300 birds have been counted.

But he’d like to see even more birds flourish there, and do more to contribute to a proactive conservation. While his range is in great shape overall, he has enrolled in SGI to take on improvements on many fronts, with a goal of improving both the pounds of forage per cow and assuring even more birds can find a home on his ranch.
