The fruition of James and Marilyn’s very positive and beneficial experience working with ranch owners and managers has been the creation of a new branch of their business in which they offer range management services.Those services available to interested parties include the following:
Walking and driving fence lines several times a month. During these fence and propoerty inspections any cut or broken wires will be fixed and we report any obvious livestock issues.
Ensuring that all gates are closed and secured.
Escorting off the land any persons encountered who did not have your personal authorization to be on the property.
Monitoring of your property with motion activated cameras and the reporting of trespassers to you and to local authorities whom are personally known.
Monitoring of your property with motion activated cameras for the purpose of determining predator or pest activity and enacting an ecologically friendly plan to manage such activities.
Providing you with photos of the property and your livestock after every visit in addition to copies of photos from motion activated cameras.
Summarizing each visit and sending you a report and recommendations, if any, based on my observations.
Serving as your liaison with all local, county, state, and Federal law enforcement agencies.
Serving as your liaison with all other Federal, State, and local government agencies, including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, CA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, and all private and educational groups involved with the study and monitoring of individual species of flora and fauna.
The range management services offered by McFadden Ranch are a means to confidently hand-off meetings and constant interactions with government agencies and private groups so that you have more time to enjoy and apply yourself to the business of running your ranch.This service can then be combined with assistance in providing ranch security and monitoring livestock.
