Bondurant Rancher Kevin Campbell, had these words to share about Zach: "I was pleased to learn that Zach had been chosen as this year’s Friend of Agriculture. Very deservent. Over the past several years I have worked with Zach a bunch dealing with the wolf predations we have had in our cattle. Have felt real fortunate to have him to work with. He is an expert and very professional at what he does plus very dedicated and hardworking. Blessed with more common sense than most people. Zach is a true asset and friend to the ranchers of Sublette County. He cares."
