Wyoming rancher named National Bison Association Member of the Year

John Flocchini of Durham Ranch near Wright, Wyo., was honored as the National Bison Association's Member of the Year at the association's annual winter conference in Denver in late January.

Flocchini was recognized for his outstanding commitment to the association, and to the bison industry.

Gail Griffin, chair of the association's past president's council, noted that Floccini was honored in large part because is "decades as a National Bison Association volunteer and his dedication to improving all aspects of the bison industry."

Flocchini current served as president of the National Bison Association from 2010-2012, and current chairs the association's board of directors. His previous positions on the board include vice president, secretary treasurer, and director at large.

Flocchini is also active in the association's Commercial Marketers' Committee, the Membership Committee and several other committees.

He has also been instrumental in guiding the association's efforts to address issues impacting the health of bison herds. Flocchini serves on the Board of Directors of the National Buffalo Foundation, which is dedicating significant resources to bison herd health issues.

As a family owner and operating manager of the Durham Ranch, he is the latest in a line of Flocchinis that have pioneered the modern commercial bison business. The Flocchini family has been in the bison business since the mid-1960's, when they purchased the Durham Ranch.

John Flocchini is also a graduate of the Wyoming Agricultural Leadership Program.
