John Lee Njos
Grass management is the major focus on the Njos Ranch. With limited water resources and fragile soils a grazing system enables the ranch to efficiently increase productivity.
John Lee and his wife, Ellen, realized early on that they needed a change in management strategies to ensure the future of their ranch. John Lee said, “In order for us to be efficient and successful in raising good quality cattle, it was important to be good managers of natural resources and matching livestock to the resources.”
The biggest improvement has been the net return through proper grass management. John Lee and Ellen feel that by striving for low input costs and working with nature we are able to turn over a successful, sustainable ranch to the next generation. Their daughter, Angela, and her family are part of the management and day to day activities of this operation. It is a joy to see the grandkids getting excited about ranching, the increased population of wildlife, and the future.
