2022 Excellence in Range Management

Allan Renz

Tres Pinos California of San Benito County


A 5th generation cattleman, he runs beef cattle on mostly public space lands and some private ground in the San Francisco southern bay area managing for a variety of state and federally listed species. He has been a featured speaker at the annual formerly Cal-Pac SRM section but now UC sponsored Range Camp, a weeklong environmental resource camp for high school students.  He has been a long-time member of the Central Coast Rangeland Conservation Coalition steering committee and has participated with UC Cooperative Extension to make a video series on beef cattle production and rangeland conservation.  He held a whole slew of leadership roles in the local cattleman and Farm Bureau chapters in his community until his children were born and he scaled back a bit.
