Fight for the Drive

The Old West is revitalized each year when the historic cattle drive known as the Upper Green River Drift makes its way through western Wyoming. Cowboys mounted horseback drive thousands of head of cattle along the path, just as they have done for 124 years. Right now, outside forces are threatening this longstanding western tradition.Continue reading “Fight for the Drive”

#RangelandWednesday: The Way to Spray

This week was more of a straightforward and normal week.  Since Larry and I started spraying last week, we have sprayed six fields, two pastures and eight riparian areas; mostly for leafy spurge and Russian thistle. Between June 1 and June 6, we sprayed unless the wind picked up to over 15 miles per hour,Continue reading “#RangelandWednesday: The Way to Spray”

#RangelandWednesday: Zane’s Second Week in Buffalo

My second week started on May 26, following the Vignaroli’s camping trip. On Tuesday, Larry and I began clearing more debris from fence on the south side of the property, then fixed the fence to be sturdier and better prepared for when the river floods again.

Jedidiah’s Week 7 Report at the Ladder Ranch

It’s hard to believe that a week has already flown by at the Ladder Ranch! We started out the week by trailing some more cattle to the forest.

Jedidiah learns about commercial sheep production

I must say, this week seemed like the longest one yet! We began the week by gathering cattle from one pasture and taking them about 5 miles up the road to another pasture. We spent several hours trying to make sure the cows were paired up so that they would hopefully not go back downContinue reading “Jedidiah learns about commercial sheep production”

Aidan continues to learn with the Kane’s

This week was very interesting, both in the field and in the classroom. On Tuesdays David and I went into Sheridan and went on a weed tour over two ne species found in Sheridan county.

It is a little tricky toContinue reading “Jedidiah remains productive with the Ladder Ranch”
