Tyson Caviness is a rancher operating a grassfed beef business alongside his wife Evanne and his two children in Fort Collins, Colorado. As a first-generation rancher leasing land from the City of Fort Collins, it is his goal to regenerate landscapes through rotational grazing, while feeding his community the highest-quality beef available. Tyson is an academic success coordinator for the Department of Animal Sciences in the College of Agricultural Sciences at Colorado State University.
Tyson holds a degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University and previously taught both elementary and middle school for five years. He has spent the last three years under the guidance of his friend and mentor Alan Tone, where he has learned the ins and outs of the hay and cattle business while growing his own herd.
Tyson’s goal as an RMFU fellow is to gain skills and leadership experience to help aid other farmers in his agricultural community so that Colorado can continue to be home to small family farms like his for generations to come.
