The Bovine Babysitters Club

Did you know that cows have babysitters? Just to be clear…I’m not talking about the adventures of teenage girls like in the Babysitters Club …I’m talking bovine to bovine, you know, helping a fellow cow out. Look out in the pasture on a sunny day and notice how most of the momma cows are busy eating while theirContinue reading “The Bovine Babysitters Club”

Bleeping Pivot

I have been enjoying The Last American Cowboy on Animal Planet.  I especially like all of the bleeps used to cover up the “color” during the everyday ranch problems that seem to afflict us all. I am certainly not the last rancher around here and thankfully there is not a camera crew following me around. ThereContinue reading “Bleeping Pivot”

Another Day at the Office

The cows have been up on US Forest grazing allotments for more than a month now. The Upper Green River Cattlemens Association pays riders to stay on the mountain with the cows and move them around to prevent overgrazing, watch for problems, doctor the sick, and keep an eye out for bear and wolf problems. While these ridersContinue reading “Another Day at the Office”

When Grizzly Meets Calf – Not a pretty picture

We helped one of our riders push cows to a different grazing area in the Teepee Creek allotment the end of July.  It was a beautiful day.  The cows were gathered from a large area in small bunches and pushed toward the new grazing area. The beautiful day quickly turned, let’s say, not so beautiful.Continue reading “When Grizzly Meets Calf – Not a pretty picture”

A Filipino in Wyoming

My wife, Lovella Dawn has sometimes found it difficult coping with the wide-open spaces and the lack of people in Wyoming.  She is originally from the Philippines near the capitol, Manila.  Manila and surrounding greater suburbs has a population of approximately 20 million people — about 40 times the entire state of Wyoming. After getting marriedContinue reading “A Filipino in Wyoming”

Spying on grass (a.k.a. monitoring)

Sunday morning my family and I went out and had a fun time picking wild flowers and monitoring our federal spring grazing land.  We drove on the Oregon Trail trying to imagine our ancestors walking and riding in a covered wagon across this sagebrush flat with very little supplies. Our ancestors came here on the OregonContinue reading “Spying on grass (a.k.a. monitoring)”

The Doctors Are In

Ever wonder how agriculturists know all that they know? I mean between needing to be economists, accountants, agronomists, entomologists, animal scientists, meteorologists…the list goes on…how can they possibly learn all they need to learn? Well most Wyoming ranchers have Bachelor’s, Master’s, and even PhD’s from accredited universities. And most of them grew up in the ranching business, gaining a lifetimeContinue reading “The Doctors Are In”

Baggs Bloggers

Baggs, Wyo. is one of those tiny communities in Wyoming you have to get to on purpose. It’s not on an interstate route and it’s not on the way to a larger city like Casper or Denver or Billings. You have to want to go there. You need to have a reason.   I was lucky enoughContinue reading “Baggs Bloggers”

Driving – The Last Day, But Not the End

Day 12 – June 28, 2010 Since we pushed our herd of cattle into the Pastures yesterday, today we helped fellow rancher Albert Sommers and his crew push the tail end of the Mesa cows into the Mud Lake West pasture (not to be confused with “The Pastures” where we pushed cows yesterday, I know, IContinue reading “Driving – The Last Day, But Not the End”

NEWS: Agreement threatens ranchers’ public-lands grazing rights

WASHINGTON – A recent settlement agreement between a major energy company and environmental activist groups could have devastating impacts on the livestock industry. The agreement, between El Paso Corp., Western Watersheds Project (WWP) and Oregon Natural Desert Association (ONDA), seeks in part to create unprecedented federal legislation to allow for the buyout and retirement ofContinue reading “NEWS: Agreement threatens ranchers’ public-lands grazing rights”
