#RangelandMonday: Prepared & Productive

This week was another productive week. Starting on Monday, I collected four coolers of flea beetles (10 plastic containers) and made more releases into draws and pastures to control spurge.

I am learning more about the use of flea beetles to control leafy spurge.

This continued until Thursday. David had made several releases into draws a few years back and I am contributing to his work in other draws that did not contain bugs.

I introduced flea beetles to some areas that did not yet contain the bugs.

On Thursday, several hands went up to Freeze Out Point, which is part of the Kane family’s allotment in the Big Horn Mountain range. We moved the cattle from last week one more time into a pasture eight miles from Freeze Out Point.

I helped move cattle again this week.

This was an easy ride but took longer than expected due to the cattle moving slower through sagebrush. On Friday, Kyle and I went over to Wolf Creek to gather wire panels and a water tank, which had been used for the big cattle move last week.

Overall, I was more prepared for the tasks and jobs that were given to me this week and I am learning a lot more about ranching operations.
