The Rosebud Conservation District would like to announce the 2021 Reg Hoff Memorial Scholarship recipient Cassy Schiffer! 

Each year the conservation district awards $1,500 in scholarships to Rosebud County graduating Highschool seniors in memory of Reg Hoff. 

Reg Hoff, a local farmer, and rancher in Forsyth Montana, also served on the Rosebud Conservation District Board of Supervisors. Reg was a dedicated husband, father, and steward of the land who took pride in his family and his operation. Although Reg was a supervisor for four short years, he was involved in conservation most of his lifetime.

The Rosebud Conservation District wishes to continue to honor Reg Hoff through this memorial scholarship.  Reg is remembered for his service to the conservation district, his dedication to leadership, encouragement to think outside of the box on conventional farming and ranching along with his drive to always keep learning and sharing that knowledge with others.

Cassie Schiffer is a 2021 graduating senior of Forsyth Highschool in Forsyth Montana.  She has chosen to go into veterinary technology because of her interest and love for taking care of animals.  She has grown up working on the family ranch, has been a member of 4-H, and is currently serving as the FFA President for the Forsyth Chapter.  Cassie has also participated in a variety of sports throughout her high school career including basketball and volleyball. 

She has taken veterinary science class and animal science class through MTDA.  She plans to get certified for equine holistic medicine, such as chiropractic, acupuncture and exercise, along with obtaining a farriers license. She plans to use her degree and knowledge to run her own operation including cattle sheep and horses when she gets older.

The Rosebud Conservation District would like to Congratulate Cassie on her hard work and encourage her success in furthering her education.

The Conservation Consideration



Why do farmers farm? Love. They must do it for love. They love to live where they work and to work where they live.

                                       --Wendell Barry


Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing. 

                                       --Camille Pissarro

What you see depends on how you view the world. To most people, this is just dirt. To a farmer, it's potential.    

                                          --Doe Zantamata

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat  match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.

                                          --Joeseph Campbell

I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.   

                                          --Henry David Thoreau

When despair for the world grows in me and      I wake in the night at the least sound in fear      of what my life and my children's lives may be,      I go and lie down where the wood drake       rests in his beauty on the water, and the     great heron feeds. I come into the peace of  wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence  of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time, I rest   in the grace of the world, and am free.

                                       --Wendell Berry
