Father and Son Cowboys

Lending his weight, Zed Davies helps his father, Stacy, mend fences on Roaring Springs Ranch, not far from Steens Mountain in Oregon. Ranchers and environmentalists mended fences of their own to reach a mixed-use plan for the area. "Everybody got a little bit of what they wanted," says Davies. In complex land exchanges, ranchers gained public acreage as private land ?  more than 60,000 acres in the case of Roaring Springs Ranch.
