Robbie is a very proactive and enthusiastic cooperator who enjoys implementing best management practices and seeing them have a positive impact on his land. This includes everything from new heavy use areas, manure bins, and renovated pastures to re-foresting 50 acres to preserve as a mixed conifer forest. He and his wife run a therapeutic horse experience for young people on their property. Not only do the best practices help the horses and the land, they also positively impact youth coming to engage with the horses. “Robbie is the most proactive, energetic and encouraging cooperator you will ever see, who is genuinely happy getting best management practices on the ground and see the positive impact they have on his land,” says farm planner, Michael Hipp.
