Gary Teague - "Green Cattle Rancher" 
As the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day nears…40 INTERESTING WAYS Cattle Farmers AND RANCHERS PRESERVE THE LAND Gary Teague and his wife, Laura, started Teague Diversified, Inc. in 1994 when they leased and operated a small feedlot while attending graduate school at Colorado State University. Today, the operation includes a 25,000-head feedlot, 2,500 cows and several ranches in Nebraska and Colorado. Teague Diversified, Inc. produces traditional grain-fed, natural and branded beef. The Teague’s three children each play a part in the family business and have learned from their parents what it means to be passionate about the land and animals. The Teague family’s composting operation epitomize their environmentally-friendly practices. They blend the waste that the animals generate with organic products that come from local food processing facilities. During a four-to-six-week process, they bind the nutrients that are in the compost to those local products. The finished product is spread on lawns to provide necessary nutrients, thus conserving the water that is applied to those lawns
