WEST FARGO, N.D. — Bobcat Company, along with partners Rick and Julie Krueter, co-hosts of the hit television show “Beyond the Hunt” on The Outdoor Channel, has selected the winner of the Create and Conserve habitat contest. Jay and Samantha Prier’s 120-acre property in Mondamin, Iowa, will experience the ultimate transformation.

Since purchasing their property in 2009, the Priers have enrolled 5.5 acres of tillable land into the conservation reserve program (CRP). They replanted land previously used for agriculture with native prairie grasses for soil stabilization, planted apple trees for wildlife forage and created a large garden that provides them continuous self-sustainment.

The property transformation will occur in September and Bobcat will use their Facebook page to provide real-time updates, photos and more information on the project.
