    Great article about the Bench Ranch. i worked with Tom Heynenam in 1986 on roundup on the Padlock Ranch when he was like 16 years old! It is great to learn how he has evolved! I visited the ranch in like 1987 (met Tom’s parents Susan and Jack) and spent a few days there and they told me about the Holistic Management they were starting.
