As co-owner of Brackett Ranches Limited Partnership, a beef producer with head of cattle spread across Idaho, Oregon and Nevada, Kim Brackett is chiefly responsible for training employees and marketing cattle. In an industry challenged to increase sustainability, Brackett, on fellowship, plans to visit Australia, which has a climate similar to the arid western U.S., to study how Australian producers improve environmental sustainability during drought conditions. She also plans to visit Argentina, a leading exporter of beef, to explore how Argentinian cattle producers successfully respond to consumer demands for sustainability and traceability.
