Walker Milhoan

Walker Milhoan was born and raised in Vail, Colorado and spent summers working on his grandfather's ranch in Rifle, CO, developing a passion for ranching and agriculture. Walker continued to pursue this passion in high school, working on the Lazy Shamrock Ranch as a teenager. He grew up on the ski racing and rodeo circuits, participating in Little Britches, high school, and collegiate rodeo, attending Frank Phillips College on a rodeo scholarship. While in Texas he day-worked for some of the largest ranches in the west, including the 6666, LIT, and Lightning Ranches.

Walker went on to gain valuable business experience outside of agriculture, including starting a successful Crossfit training center in Montana in 2003 and working with international clients as a heli-ski guide in Cordova, AK with Points North Heli Adventures from 2004 - 2007.

In 2005 Walker spent 8 months in Uganda, Africa kayaking the River Nile and gaining an appreciation for the challenges facing farmers and ranchers globally. In 2011 Walker attended TCU and earned a degree in Ranch Management which led him back to Africa, this time to Ghana, where he led a team that researched the country’s beef industry from pasture to plate.

After TCU, Walker worked for both the 61 Bar Ranch and Missoula Livestock Exchange, where he gained valuable knowledge about ranch management and cattle marketing. Recognizing the opportunity to improve operations by incorporating technology, Walker enrolled in technology classes at the University of Montana, exploring information systems, computer programming, and design. Combining his background in ranching with his excitement for innovative technology, Walker formed Ranchlogs, Inc., a software company focused on grazing and livestock management, in 2014.
