Mr. Anderson operates the Frying Pan Ranch in Hemphill County, lying in the Canadian Breaks sand-sage landscape of the Panhandle, north of Canadian, Texas. He has been recognized as a Lone Star Land Steward by Texas Parks and Wildlife for his integrated management of the property's cattle operation and wildlife resources, particularly the protection and promotion of the lesser prairie chicken.
