The Edwards Draw Ranch has undergone a major transformation from an abandoned cattle and limited recreation ranch with no grazing for 15 years to a vibrant planned grazing operation using the philosophy of Holistic Management Goals that focuses on enhancing natural resources on the land while increasing livestock and forage production. The overall format of the Holistic Management framework is: Plan, Implement, Monitor, Control (for
minor adjustments) and/or Re-plan (for major corrections). The results of this rigorous focus on the whole from soil organisms to the wool, beef, deer and natural diversity produced is in contrast to most of the continuous grazing operations in the area. This management philosophy was implemented on the ranch and used as a tool for rangeland recreation. Today the ranch uses a larger 4 pasture rotation plan.
The Edwards Draw Ranch is dominated by native grasses and juniper typical of the Edwards Plateau as well as a diverse landscape of forbs, shrubs, and trees. Many range scientists have described this ranch after observing the implementation of Holistic Management Goals as unique to the region with outstanding range diversity. The topography ranges from 1,968 to 2,200 feet with generally a rolling landscape with some steep canyons and big live oak and lacy oaks along the bottoms. The ranch has been divided into a number of smaller pastures to facilitate the high intensity short duration grazing systems. Water features at centralized locations allows for the livestock to be readily moved by merely opening and closing gates.
The headquarters of the ranch has been designed to facilitate enjoyment of the recreational and agricultural values that accommodates large groups of guest for entertaining, hunting, ranching, and continuing the stewardship practices of the past landowners.
