In keeping with the ranch mission the ranch is self supported through its ranching operations and uses actual operations for educational programs aimed at helping Texas ranchers.

Projects at La Copita Demonstration Ranch focus on integration of range resource management. Understanding plant, insect, and animal interactions is critical to making management decisions that influence their ecology and environment. Landowners and managers making these decisions are generally concerned about the economics of implementing changes in management. La Copita is investigating the balance of revenues and resources to maintain healthy sustainable ecological systems. Range management practices implemented to maintain the health and diversity of vegetation resources involve balancing animal densities, grazing events, vegetation manipulations, and soil disturbances. Each of these management decisions is focused on enhancing the effectiveness of rainfall that controls and limits vegetation production.
