“In 1860, my great-great grandparents homesteaded just a mile up the road here,” explains JD Hamm, fifth-generation owner and operator of the Montana Cow Company.
Today on the blog, we bring to you a father-daughter duo that have been LandTrust landowners for over a year. Katelyn Kohlbeck’s family moved to Bozeman, MT in 1919 and has been raising registered Herefords since 1935. However, Katelyn was honest about what many ranching families know when she said “You can’t just live off of cows.... We needed to find another way to make a little bit of income in between the checks that you get from cattle sale to cattle sale.”

Welcome to the LandTrust blog! We are excited to introduce this page to you to help share our LandTrust stories with landowners, sportsmen, industry partners, government programs and conservation experts. If you are new to LandTrust, we welcome you to visit our About Us page to learn more about who we are and what we stand for.
Recently, there has been a lot of conservation talk in the news. Conservation is our business, which is why we are looking forward to diving deeper into this topic with you. We plan to share resources and open the door to more conversation regarding the effect of certain policies and how that might shape the future for private landowners. We hope to support these landowners through our LandTrust marketplace by connecting them with respectful sportsmen. By allowing our sportsmen to book a hunt on private property, our landowners grant them access while generating more income for their operations.
In the meantime, we hope you enjoy learning more about LandTrust by listening to and reading featured podcasts and articles.
