Alan Kirkbride is a rancher from Cheyenne, Wyoming. His family’s ranch has been in production since 1892. Alan was one of the Contestants in the Lerwick Contested Case. His family’s ranch would have been severely impacted by the groundwater pumping because the Kirkbride ranch relies heavily on the springs and creeks to water their cattle and the increased productivity of the sub-irrigated meadows.
