natives of South Dakota Monte and Lana have lived in New Mexico
for over 35 years. They have been in the buffalo industry
for almost two decades. It started with two orphan calves
from the Bison ranch where "Dances with Wolves"
was filmed, and a life long interest in buffalo became a passion
with Monte. Their animals are humanely cared for...and their
breeding program has a strong focus on horn growth and massive
animals for record-book trophies!
Considered a Mom & Pop outfitter, they strive to make
each hunter feel welcome. Their our goal is to make this a
"Hunt of a Lifetime" that each hunter will remember
and talk about for years to come.
Working closely with Rancho de Chavez and Bonanza Creek Ranch, the hunts take place on
5000 acres of rugged, high desert country. BCR is not only a
working longhorn ranch but also a movie set and home of Silverado,
Into the West, Lonesome Dove, Wild Hogs and many more feature
films over the past 20 some years.

Dear Monte and Lana,
Thank you for participating in the Bosque Farms Elementary School 2018 Ag Days.
Ms. Cathy Chavez was instrumental in starting the program in 2004, and, when she took another postion in the district, Ms. Tammy Silva continued this treasured tradition. This year, however, after getting the program set up, Ms. Silva had a family emergency and could not participate, but Ms. Joan Culver took over. None of these ladies could do the programs, though, without the support and help of staff, students, local businesses, and community members.
On behalf of the 2018 Ag Days committee, I thank the LaMont Buffalo for generously bringing Cookie for some of BFE's staff and 550+ students to see, touch, feed, smell, get good luck fur from, and learn about. We know you always have a crazy busy schedule--and this year was particularly crazy--so we are really grateful you were able to include us on your calendar.
Ag Days are held every other year, and we hope you will consider sharing with us once again in 2020!
Thank you very much for your part in helping making this year's event such a success.
