Padlock Ranch\Wyoming Travel and Tourism\

Padlock Ranch, recipient of the 2013 Leopold Conservation Award in Wyoming, was honored for voluntary achievement in conservation today by Governor Matt Mead at the Wyoming Cattle Industry Convention & Trade Show in Cheyenne.

The $10,000 Leopold Conservation Award named for renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold, was presented to Padlock Ranch by Sand County Foundation, Wyoming Stock Growers Association (WSGA) and Peabody Energy.

Padlock Ranch operates a sustainable and profitable cattle operation on 500,000 acres in Wyoming and Montana. In addition to being a successful and sustainable cattle ranch raising natural beef, Padlock offers vacationing guests an opportunity to share in the Western lifestyle through working ranch, hunting and fishing, and photography vacations.

A tour of the ranch will take place on July 9, Wyoming Environmental Stewardship Day. The annual Environmental Stewardship Tour is hosted by WSGA and the Wyoming Department of Agriculture, and showcases the Leopold Conservation Award recipient.

Homer and Mildred Scott started Padlock Ranch in 1943 with 300 cows and 3000 acres. It has grown to 11,000 head of cattle on land straddling the Wyoming/Montana state line.
