Out of Shadows

An open space in the forest with a view of a narrow creek going into the mountains

John Ross, with his family, ranches in the dry mixed grass prairie east of Milk River. John is of a multi-generational ranching family whose roots precede the formation of the province of Alberta. Ranching sustainably in the arid grasslands of Alberta is habit, a function of years of experience and of survival. It is also about stewardship of water and of riparian areas, valuable assets in a dry land. “I fully believe in the whole environment and grassroots approach. We continue to ranch the old fashioned way – grazing the native prairie grass, using horses and raising cattle basically the way my great grandfather did. “
