49: Louis Martin - Round River Resource Management

Louis Martin knew very young that he wanted to be a ranch manager, and recognized early on that there is a big difference between managing cows, and managing a business than runs cows. He took every opportunity to learn from skilled mentors and advisors, and educated himself on the keys to business management rather than just animal science. His career took him from managing ranches in Texas, to Utah and finally landed himself in Colorado where he today manages over 75,000 acres of leased ranchland and along with 2 apprentices runs a combination of both owned and leased cows and stocker cattle. He shares tips for management, working with interns and apprentices, investing in your staff, and creating networks and relationships!
