The National Young Farmers Educational Association (NYFEA), Montana State University and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln named Todd Inglee and family of Arvada, CO, owners of Ralston Valley Beef, as their 2011 Environmental Leader. The national award recognizes young and beginning producers who integrate environmental management into their overall business and production plans.

Ralston Valley Beef (RVB) raises grass-fed and grain-finished cattle; they sell direct to individuals, and restaurants and specialty grocers. The company also coordinates the custom processing and delivery of beef. RVB's mission is to provide high-quality, ranch-direct beef in a simple, convenient and responsible manner.

The company headquarters is in Arvada, CO. Cattle come from two ranches: one located in the Rocky Mountain meadows of Clear Creek County west of Denver and one located in the grassy high plains east of Colorado Springs.
