Butters Ranching Ltd is a commercial cow-calf ranch located northwest of Cochrane, alongside the Rocky Mountains and astride Robinson Creek which flows through the ranch. The ranch philosophy is to manage the land for the legacy to their children and grandchildren and the responsibility to maintain healthy, productive lands for society over economic considerations.
“I can’t remember when I first felt connected to the land but I know that the close relationship we share with land, and water, cows and horses is something at the core of who I am. Caring for the land like my parents do translate into a fair bit of extra work, when more work was maybe not what we needed most.”
