#RangelandWednesday: Invasive Species Work

This week started off as usual, checking water tanks and gathering supplies for projects that needed to be done around the ranch. This week’s project was building sturdier H-braces, building “blockers” for cattle on water tanks, and finally concentrating on eradicating prairies dogs.

Kyle, David, and I built steal braces and reinforced blockers on a specific water tank, due to a float being bent from the cattle. The projects took all day, but it was easy to install all the steel bars required for each project.

The next day, Tuesday, was a little less busy, since all of us were caught up on a lot of past projects. Therefore, I built fence and checked storage tanks.

Tuesday I kept busy working on different projects.

On Wednesday, David gave me the training and supplies needed to poison prairie dog towns. I enjoyed this part of the week because it has been a while since I have done this invasive species work. This continued through the rest of the week.

It was nice to do this type of invasive species work for the first time in a while.

I am close to being finished with this half of the internship. My last week of the internship will be next week, when I will have to leave Thursday due to the University of Wyoming’s recently released COVID mandates for students returning to Laramie.
