The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has named a Yolo County ranching operation winner of its 2008 environmental stewardship award.
The Yolo Land & Cattle Co., owned by Hank Stone and his sons, won the national honor for its commitment to rangeland conservation and natural resource enhancement, said Bruce Hafenfeld, president of the California Cattlemen’s Association.
The Stones market their 600-head Angus herd as grass-fed beef – no hormones or animal by-products.
