Bluesette Campbell and her husband, Mark, run a 4000-acre ranch as a 700-cow/calf and long yearling operation along with Mark’s brother, Scott.  They are third generation Campbells with the intergenerational transition to the fourth just around the corner.  Their family ranch has been managed holistically for 35 years with Bluesette being a manager/owner for the past 20+.  It is stated in their 3-part holistic goal that ideas and experiences are shared with others in the community, therefore, as Don Campbell did before her, Bluesette is becoming a Certified Educator so she can teach what has brought her family much success in agriculture. She currently sits as President on the HM Canada Board and is actively teaching course, speaking and consulting.
