    FW Student with Questions for Cattle Ranchers

    I have 8 credits in Marine Biology. Not my major or anything, it was a science class available in a time slot I had. Interesting subject. I learned enough to realize that I don't know anything about it. I will echo what Red Robin. It is nice to have someone who is studying a subject which...

    FW Student with Questions for Cattle Ranchers

    Julia, please don't take this as a personal attack because it certainly is not intended to be one. In fact this might be something to take back to your class as a topic which needs discussion. More and more I see young people who are city raised with virtually no outdoor experience who go to...

    FW Student with Questions for Cattle Ranchers

    What makes you think we need to "set aside" land for wildlife conservation? That list I sent you of animals I have seen were all seen on land which is actively managed as a cattle ranch. Yesterday morning as I went out with the feed truck to feed the cows there was 4 deer bedded down in the...

    Hello from Modoc Co. Calif.

    Welcome to Ranchers and I will echo the thank you for your service. We are probably only a tank of gas away so that is nearly neighbors.

    2020 was good to me

    I have grand kid number 12 on the way. To arrive in April. Time for the kids to take a break. Between Christmas and birthdays I might end up in bankruptcy. However, I do wish I could see them more. Most of them live 7-8 hour drive away from here.

    Changes you have noticed in your area

    I was over on the coast this summer. They were installing one in the middle of a long straight stretch of Hwy 12. I wonder how many trucks are going to hit that thing at 55 MPH. The daughter was living out of Miles about 5 years ago. I don't remember a roundabout there. But they were/are...

    Changes you have noticed in your area

    I was riding with a gal from Musselshell when my daughter first went to work over there. We by Billings and we came to a roundabout. It was the first one that gal had ever seen. She was froze at the wheel. What is this and what am I supposed to do?

    It can be fun, interesting, and educational to look at different areas and what it takes to run cows there. Starting out one of the best ways is to find a lease. You can build a herd without spending a couple million on the land required to run them on.

    I am a long ways from you so I don't have a real answer to that question. But at 14 years old can't imagine that it would be too far away from home. At that age there is not going to be a lot of people willing to take responsibility for you. At 16 you could certainly travel farther and at 18...

    National finals rodeo

    That was La Grande Thursday before last. 4,500 head. They didn't sell stock cows until about midnight. I know it was 12:30 am when I went to pay, after 1:00 by the time I topped over Ladd. 1:58 when I got off the freeway. Too long of a day for this old guy. The last two weeks I was at...

    National finals rodeo

    I had several friends comment about judging of the bareback from the first round. I missed it. I didn't get home from the cow sale until after 2:00AM that night. I watched the rerun of the first round tonight. That first guy out in the bareback got robbed. To me the judging was sub par all...
