Dan Leahy

President, Foundation for Ranch Management

Dan Leahy has worked exclusively in resource management since 2005. Beginning with mineral exploration projects in Alaska and the lower 48 states, he eventually specialized in ranches. Dan has personally managed four ranches in Oregon, California, Texas, and Wyoming. His clients now include numerous confidential investment ranch owners. In 2018 he established Foundation for Ranch Management, specifically to research the phenomenon of professional ranch management in the western US. Some 80+ professional ranch managers have contributed to this research. They lead ranches such as Roaring Springs Ranch, Winecup Gamble Ranch, IX Ranch, and the Little Jennie Ranch. Foundation for Ranch Mangement facilitates apprenticeships in ranch management, promotes population based dietary health science, and the freedom to produce food, fiber and minerals essential to National security.
