About the author

Ryan Sexson and his wife Jamie were born and raised in the Sandhills and have a passion for ranching. Both of them have been told numerous times that there is no future in ranching, however, they have found that statement anything but true. They lease a small ranch south of Nenzel, Nebraska. They own a portion of the cow herd and take in cows on shares. They also custom calve some heifers and cows. Ryan and Jamie concentrate heavily on a “holistic” approach to everything in their lives, not just ranching. The holistic approach helps with problem solving. Whether it is grazing, budgeting or family time, Ryan and Jamie attempt to make it all work together.They are using what they have learned from Holistic Management courses, Bud Williams' stockmanship schools, and Ranching for Profit classes to build a successful ranching operation. Legacy is important to both of them, and they have concentrated on building relationships and gaining knowledge in order to develop a sustainable business to pass to their children if they desire to follow in their parents’ footsteps. Ryan hopes to have some knowledge and ideas that can help others, particularly those that have a desire to start their own operation.
