Lance is familiar with all types of ranch equipment including tractors, pumps and other mechanical elements, hay production, etc. He can also provide resources to help with land clearing, road construction, and live water projects like dams and bridges. Lance has been involved in these types of projects of since he was just a young kid, and can give you an idea of what a property can be sculpted to look like, and what your property can produce.

We enjoy what we do, and particularly enjoy helping others find that same love for ranching.”
