Brant is a fifth-generation agriculturalist from the Ruby Valley in Southwest Montana. He has been raised in many areas of agriculture from irrigated small grains and hays, cow-calf, backgrounding feedlots, and yearling operations. Along with production agriculture experience, Brant was brought up on a leased ranch where there has always been a large emphasis on many aspects of wildlife. Brant has a degree from Montana State University with a B.S. in Animal Science with a focus on Livestock Management. He believes that there is a symbiotic relationship between wildlife and production agriculture. His hobbies include many outdoor activities and metal fabrication projects in the shop.
