Description

Alejandro Carrillo is a fourth-generation rancher in the Chihuahuan desert. Rarely his precipitation goes beyond 9” per year (less than 230mm). Every drop counts to grow more and better grasses and forbs. He is not willing to waste any water in such a brittle environment if he wants to graze year-round without inputs.

Alejandro’s ranch, Las Damas, has been part of multiple documentaries and studies focused on regenerative ranching such as Common Ground, Sacred Cow, To Which We Belong, and Water in Plain Sight.

Alejandro established a solid relationship with bird conservation organizations 10+ years ago, working closely with them to protect migratory birds successfully.

Alejandro’s Grasslands Regeneration Project company assists ranchers and organizations on regenerative practices in North America, South America, Africa, Australia, and the Middle East. 

He also participates as a delegate to the United Nations to Combat Desertification and Land Degradation in multiple countries.
