A Western Affair 2023

25 Years – Celebrating the Fruits of Our Labor

Saturday, May 20, 2023

with a special pre-party on Friday, May 19

Yolo Land and Cattle Co.
Esparto, CA

We have a lot to celebrate. For 25 years, the Rangeland Trust community has come together to conserve California’s working lands and keep ranchers ranching. Now we can look around us and see all the good that is resulting. Because of what has been conserved, today we can enjoy the fruits of our labor.

There is great diversity with more than 400 foods that can be produced in California. Our agricultural lands offer a unique story of abundance in which livestock play an important role. Our abundance means there is enough nutrition and variety for everyone. What we conserve now will enable us to keep celebrating these gifts of the land for generations to come.

As we gather round the table at Yolo Land & Cattle, we can celebrate the achievements of the past 25 years, enjoy good company and pasture-to-plate flavors, and look ahead to all that is possible for the future – a bountiful future worth fighting for!
