Tara Mulhern Davidson

Range Biologist and Rancher

Lonesome Dove Ranch

Tara Mulhern Davidson ranches with her husband, Ross, and four young children in southwest Saskatchewan near Ponteix. They run Lonesome Dove Ranch, a large commercial and purebred Gelbvieh cow-calf operation that they started in 2005. They raise feeder calves, replacement heifers and work alongside Ross' parents at Davidson Gelbvieh to co-host an annual yearling bull sale.

Tara loves the diversity of ranch life, whether it’s teaching her children to identify invasive weeds at highway speeds, her never-ending quest to make the perfect hay bale or making connections within the livestock and forage sector.

Tara obtained her BSA from the University of Saskatchewan, with a major in animal science and a minor in rangeland resources. She has worked in the provincial, federal and non-profit sectors as a rangeland specialist. She is currently a consulting agrologist, working in forage and range management, beef extension and, her passion, prairie conservation. Tara also enjoys writing a little (say, 140 characters) or a lot, and is a freelance writer and social media coordinator for a few organizations. She rambles about livestock, parenting and the prairie on her blog, "A Little Bit Western."
