There are many different ways to look at Stewardship - but for Chaparral Feeders, it is something that runs deep within us. Not only do we take great pride in conserving our natural resources, but we take pride handling our customers cattle as if they were our own.
Stewardship (n): The job of supervising or taking care of something, such as an organization or property.
The great Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Of all the questions which can come before this nation, short of the actual preservation of its existence in a great war, there is none which compares in importance with the great central task of leaving this land even a better land for our descendants than it is for us, and training them into a better race to inhabit the land and pass it on. Conservation is a great moral issue for it involves the patriotic duty of insuring the safety and continuance of the nation, … , let me add that the health and vitality of our people are at least as well worth conserving as their forests, waters, lands, and minerals, and in this great work the national government must bear a most important part.”
