How Beef Production, Biodiversity, and Habitat Preservation Go Hand In Hand

A Lunchtime Lecture by Meredith Ellis of G Bar C Ranch

Meredith Ellis believes the biggest mistake we can make is to forget about the vast wilderness of ranch land that is preserved from the threat of industry and development. The great symbiotic relationship that cattle have developed over centuries makes her job as a rancher one of simply keeping that balance of nature, and in doing so, has left her with great admiration of its simplicity and beauty of that process. Ranchers are the keepers of the land, and the benefits of their stewardship are known by all the living things that call it home. It’s time to not just value ranch land for the food it provides, but to the important services it gives to our natural world.



About Research Lecture Series

The BRIT Lecture Series is designed to create community wide conversation about a diverse range of important and rapidly developing topics. This series gives scientists and speakers a forum for sharing the most current information about their areas of expertise and allows the public to interact with leading members of the local, national, and international scientific community.

Our Lecture Series is made up of Lunchtime Lectures and Research Seminars. Lunchtime Lectures take place the first Tuesday of each month, February – July and September – November, from noon - 1pm in the BRIT Commons (**Now held virtually until further notice***). Research Seminars take place periodically throughout the year and are scheduled based on the availability of our in-house and visiting researchers.

All events are free and open to the public. Please watch this page and our social media channels for announcements of upcoming Lunchtime Lectures and Researcher Seminars.
