Larry Smith, long-time Phillips county rancher and Ducks Unlimited
conservation partner, will be the featured guest on Montana Ag Live show Sunday,
September 9th. Bob Sanders, DU manager
of conservation programs for Montana, will also be part of a panel discussion
on how agriculture and conservation can coexist for the benefit of both.
Larry and his wife, Michelle, have endured the highs and lows of
production on the Hi-Line for four generations and they personally recommend
conservation partnerships. The Smith Family has played a key role in referring
thousands of additional acres to become enrolled under DU’s conservation
need grass and water and so do the ducks and other wildlife,” Larry said.
“These (conservation) programs help keep the ranch viable and allow us to pass
the operation on to our kids and grandkids.”
Live airs Sunday evening, Sept 9 at 6 p.m. The program is a question and answer format, so anyone with questions
concerning the topic can phone in at (888)
