The American Rancher

The American Rancher

"The American Rancher" series, hosted by Pam Minick, began in the fall of 2004. It has become a brilliant program, dedicated to bringing audiences in touch with the people and places that make ranching an American lifestyle.

This thirty-minute show features livestock producers, their ranches, livestock and ranching practices and more. Periodically, the show includes a segment designed for young people called "The Young American Rancher." These stories briefly profile youth and young people from ages 7-25 that are involved with livestock, FFA, 4H, rodeo or their family operation.

Each week, Pam Minick takes viewers on an informative visit to different ranching operations and to meet the people that run them. A former Miss Rodeo America, Minick has a distinguished career in both rodeo competition and in television receiving awards from national institutions of western culture and achievement including the 1999 Tad Lucas Award from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame, 2000 inductee into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame, 2004 inductee into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame in Fort Worth and was the recipient of 2006 Great Woman of Texas award.

You can always expect to see the people and personalities that keep the ranching spirit alive. "The American Rancher" continues to provide ranch owners the opportunity to showcase their operations, while at the same time sharing the experience of ranching with viewers in a real way.
