Centennial Valley, Montana USA

Ranchers drive cattle 60 miles through the Ruby Dell Mountains to their summer pastures in the Centennial Valley of Southwestern Montana.

By bunching together for safety and intensely grazing an area for a brief period before moving on, rangeland health will improve. Ami Vitale/The Stand
