RANCH SALES | RANCH OWNER/OPERATOR – MONTANA & WYOMING
Bill’s love of land, animals and conservation evolved while growing up on his family’s farm in northeastern Pennsylvania. After serving in the U.S. Army/Ordnance Corps in Europe, Bill studied Wildlife Biology at the University of Montana and spent time working on several cattle ranches.
Following his dream, he purchased and re-built a small mountain ranch west of Philipsburg, traded up to a ranch north of Sheridan, WY and eventually moved to a larger range operation in Powder River country east of Buffalo, WY.
Bill’s education background in wildlife and his common sense application of Holistic Resource Management (HRM) helped him to improve land resources and wildlife habitat throughout his thirty years as a landowner/manager.
