Wyoming Energy Makes Positive Impacts

Sage Grouse on the Sun Ranch

Working with other stakeholders is the norm for the Sun Ranch west of Casper, Wyo. Like any ranching operation, it is multi-faceted and complex at times. A series of cause and effects reflect on the landscape showing change regularly, some good and some bad. It is important for Dennis Sun, owner of the Sun RanchContinue reading “Sage Grouse on the Sun Ranch”

Trailing to the Mountains

The sun starts to lighten the skyline above the Wind River Mountains while the song birds can be heard singing and the warm and cool air currents can be felt as the cowboys ride across the sagebrush, BLM allotment to gather the cattle and start them marching north to summer pasture.  This is the beginningContinue reading “Trailing to the Mountains”

Spring Pasture

Driving Part V

Day 5 – June 21, 2010 We pushed from what we call Barlow’s Corrals (the end of the driveway) to a place we call Mickey Adam’s today (It’s common practice for ranchers to name our pastures and other places on our ranches. This makes it easier to communicate when we’re conducting business). Not a bad drive,Continue reading “Driving Part V”

Driving Part IV

Day 4 – June 20, 2010 Today was an easy day and it provided a nice break after the last few days gathering off the Mesa.  The cattle are contained in a pretty small area at the drift fence, so they can’t wander far unless they go up the river where we want them. SoContinue reading “Driving Part IV”

Driving Part III

Day 3 – June 19, 2010 Things went fairly smooth today.  We were a little short on help for such a large area to gather, but things came together in the end.  The cows didn’t bother to move forward from where we left them yesterday, they just spread out, so there was a lot ofContinue reading “Driving Part III”
