Producer Profiles

Dennis Thaler
Cow/calf, yearling and feedlot operator in LaGrange, Wyoming
In 1903, my great-great uncle left Hungary to put down roots on a 320-acre homestead in Wyoming, which has turned into a 20,000 acre ranch and farm. That homestead is now called Thaler Land & Livestock Company. By staying true to the conservation goals of our operation, we have proven that a carefully managed cattle operation can be profitable, environmentally sustainable and also beneficial!
