Blizzards and Cattle

Perhaps you watch the weather and heard about the West getting pounded with snow this week? We were right in the path of the storm, and couldn’t have been happier about the prospective moisture!

The Art of Irrigating

Mosquitoes buzzing, sweat dripping from the brow under the rim of a cowboy hat, shovel over the shoulder and black rubber irrigating boots almost to the knees is the description of a rancher while irrigating.
