Mountain Springs Ranch was established in 1972 by Dave Packard and Bill Hewlett. It was originally named the San Felipe Ranch. In 1997 Bill Hewlett’s daughter Mary Jaffe purchased the ranch and changed the name to Mountain Springs. Shane Rosenkrance is the ranch manager. Mountain Springs Ranch is headquartered in Mackay Idaho and grazes cattle in Butte & Custer counties and in Dell, Montana.

The goals of the ranch are to operate in an environmentally sustainable manner so it can be passed on and enjoyed from one generation to the next. The Mountain Springs operation constantly seeks to improve their rangeland, water quality, and water cycle, and provide quality habitat for wildlife.

Through joining the network, ranch manager Shane Rosenkrance hopes to learn or help develop easy and reliable monitoring techniques that are accepted by the various government agencies and really reflect what is happening on the range.
