The Wyoming Public Lands Coalition has elected Dennis Sun as its chairman and Wyoming director of the Public Lands Council.
Sun has been involved in the livestock business since his grandmother gave him a cow and calf at 5 years old. He has ranched all his life west and southwest of Casper with his wife, Peggy. They have two grown children.
Sun is also publisher of the Wyoming Livestock Roundup and has served on various federal lands boards and boards in land conservation, range conflict resolution, livestock, church, health care and ag education and local school education. His family has lived in Wyoming since the 1870s.
Sun will replace Niels Hansen, who ranches near Rawlins.
Hansen will continue to serve as Wyoming’s representative to the Public Lands Council’s Sage Grouse Task Force.
