Praise for Mike’s presentations
Mike Hudak has seen more of the West’s controversial grazing allotments than anyone alive. Because of his extensive travels and his thorough review of the issues surrounding these lands, Mike can authoritatively discuss the hype and the reality of western livestock production. This is a person who has seen the good, bad, and the ugly first hand on the ground and knows what he is talking about.
—George Wuerthner, author, photographer, conservationist
Mr. Hudak has spent years researching and gaining first-hand knowledge of the pollution, species extinction, and degradation of ecosystems that raising cattle on public lands entails. His presentation, complete with disturbing slides of affected areas, has inspired me to include this information in my humane education presentations.

director, The Animal Project.
Mike doesn’t just report what others have done. He speaks from first-hand experience, and he has the pictures to prove it. His work makes an invaluable contribution to environmental, animal rights, and vegetarian causes. We urge any group dedicated to those causes to engage him as a speaker.

I would like to lend my complete support to Dr. Mike Hudak’s current initiatives to publicize the issue of the impacts of cattle grazing on western public lands. His own personal field observations and photographic documentation are carefully synthesized with data and theories obtained from the peer reviewed scientific literature. The slide presentations he offers on the subject are varied, interesting and technically correct.
