It’s no surprise that Jeff, Joan, Leslie & Lochlan Buckingham received the “Conservationist of the Year Award”  from the Coastal San Luis Resource Conservation District (RCD) for making considerable conservation improvements to their ranch in San Luis Obispo County.

As stated in a recent press release from the RCD…”The Buckingham family owns a 540 acre cattle ranch near Los Osos and is always looking for ways to improve the rangeland. Due to the drought, Central Coast ranchers struggle with both substantially reduced forage production and reduced drinking water available for livestock. With assistance from RCD, NRCS, Cal Poly and UC Cooperative Extension, a number of projects and practices aimed to capture moisture and increase forage production are taking place at their ranch. These projects include applying compost to improve the soil, use of a keyline plow to open the soil for percolation, rotational grazing and enhancing the ranch’s creeks.”

This blogger would describe Jeff as an innovator for sure, always looking for a better, more efficient, (and if you know Jeff) a kinder  way of doing things.  Jeff has served on the Farm Supply Company Board of Directors since 2009 and has been a member of our cooperative since 1999.

The Coastal San Luis Resource Conservation District (RCD) is dedicated to enhancing & maintaining the natural resources in the district they serve. For more information on the RCD, visit their website at www.coastalrcd.org.
