There are different ways to fertilize the ground you grow your crops on.  Our crop is hay.  We grow it in the summer so we have something to feed the cattle in the winter.  When the cows come home from their summer pasture in the fall they are left to roam and graze in theContinue reading “Fertilizer”

2011 Upper Green Cattle Drive

Yes, I know I’ve been lax in my duties writing about the Upper Green River Cattle Drive this year, so here is a little summary and photos to make up for it. There was so much snow in the mountains this year and it took so long to melt off that the drive started aboutContinue reading “2011 Upper Green Cattle Drive”

Just Feedin’ Cows…and Deer!

Things have slowed down on the ranch now.  We aren’t pushing cows and we aren’t shipping cows, that’s all over with.  Now it’s time to settle in for the winter.  Most of our time is spent feeding the cattle and finishing or starting odd projects around the place that need doing.  We’ve made it throughContinue reading “Just Feedin’ Cows…and Deer!”

Ranchers Brand New Elementary School

On July 20, 2010, the Green River Valley Cowbelles organized a branding for the new Pinedale Elementary School. Forty-five ranchers from the Pinedale, Daniel, Boulder and Cora areas were called. Thirty-five ranchers showed up with their brands and 73 brands were put over the entrance to the school and the entrances to the three pods.Continue reading “Ranchers Brand New Elementary School”

Super Cow

We had a purebred angus cow that wasn’t holding still long enough for her calf to eat.  Confining her in the corral gave her calf a chance to finally get his dinner. By the next day the old gal felt like she had things in hand and was determined to leave as soon as possible. HerContinue reading “Super Cow”

Gardening…Sublette County, Wyo. Style

I hear it all the time. “You can’t grow a garden here.” “It’s too cold!” (An elevation of 7,192 feet doesn’t help much either). There is no doubt that we can have frost here any day of the year.  We usually can’t plant until the first of June and sometimes even later than that. Tomatoes,Continue reading “Gardening…Sublette County, Wyo. Style”

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”

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”
