A 5th generation California Rancher, Bill Burrows’ family immigrated to Northern California in 1848 and the family has been active in agriculture and natural resources since that time.
Trained at UC Davis, he devoted 35 years to developing the Agriculture and Natural Resources Program at Shasta College, while operating the 3500 acre family ranch west of Red Bluff, California.
Bill is the Coordinator for the 40,000 acre Sunflower Coordinated Resource Management Plan (CRMP) in which 65 landowners and agency personnel have come together to develop a goal of making the chaparral belt land and associated areas more productive and safe for the social, financial, and environmental needs of the stewards of the land.
Trained in Holistic Management, Bill has been a keynote speaker and has given seminars throughout the Western United States and three countries in Africa. Many of these presentations have included his seven grandchildren, all of whom are involved on the family ranch.
