Mary’s week of cowboying and cleaning up

This week at Perry Cattle Co., I got to spend a lot of time in the saddle, and I got to clean the barn and some of the equipment. We needed to clean the barn so that we could brand and vaccinate the seven “slicks” (or unbranded calves) that had just been born or missedContinue reading “Mary’s week of cowboying and cleaning up”

Aidan’s week of fencing

This week I learned how to take down fence. Monday I took down quite a bit of fence, and I have to say, this is not the kind of work you want to be tall for. By the end of the day I felt like an old man walking around with a hunch back! TheContinue reading “Aidan’s week of fencing”

Jedidiah Tries to Beat the Heat

This week was definitely a cooker! We have been struggling to manage working all day in the heat and still have energy and motivation. I worked all day on Monday on a short piece of fence in the corral that was patched together with panels. I re-set the posts because they were badly leaning andContinue reading “Jedidiah Tries to Beat the Heat”

Andrew’s Anticipated Week

We have continued toContinue reading “Jedidiah Plays Mechanic”

Intern Noah Schick’s Stewardship Tour Experience

This week was pretty sleepy. We irrigated and did various repairs around the Ranch. A bird had built its nest in the irrigation pipe, so the built up pressure almost blew the pipe apart, but we cleaned it out and took care of it. We continued repairing fences that had been blown over in theContinue reading “Intern Noah Schick’s Stewardship Tour Experience”

Jedidiah Learns Outside of the Ranch

Weekly Work Summary- June 19-24, 2017 This week we finally licked the first cutting of hay. After swathing on three different days, we got the last meadow laid down.
