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. Most of them went okay, but there were a few that decided to take to the brush! After a lot of hard riding, I just had toContinue reading “Jedidiah’s Week 7 Report at the Ladder Ranch”

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. The two species were Medusahead and Ventenata. Both are grasses that are highly invasive, and Ventenata is so invasive thatContinue reading “Aidan continues to learn with the Kane’s”

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’s weekly work summary

We had another real Western week at the Ladder Ranch! We started off by branding another bunch of calves out on the desert. It was a swell time! We had a really good team of ropers and wrestlers, which helped get the work done quickly. After we had the branding out of the way, theContinue reading “Jedidiah’s weekly work summary”

Jedidiah’s Last Week With The Perry’s

This week was we were in the saddle almost every day. I actually got a little tired of riding. On Tuesday we weaned the calves at home and turned the calves out. We were going to let them work their way back to the pasture we had taken them out of, but they were hungryContinue reading “Jedidiah’s Last Week With The Perry’s”

Andrew’s Last Week at the E Bar U

My time here at the E Bar U has come to a close and I couldn’t be happier about the time I have spent here. I not only learned the day in and day out work required to keep a large operation running, but how a family works together to make a livelihood in modernContinue reading “Andrew’s Last Week at the E Bar U”

Finances & Farriers

The Perry Ranch has kept range land Jedidiah Hewlett very busy this summer. He’s almost done with his time at the ranch, but he is working hard until the end.  This week we got the one field raked, baled, and stacked. We also received three semi-truckloads of oat hay and bedding. We decided to waitContinue reading “Finances & Farriers”

Odd Jobs & Ends For Jedidiah

This week was full of small projects that ended up keeping us very busy. We did some corral repair and hung more joints of methane pipe where the old fence was in disrepair. I had to weld some of the pipes and I caught a small patch of cheatgrass on fire since it was soContinue reading “Odd Jobs & Ends For Jedidiah”

Intern Andrew Plays Doctor

After last weeks adventure of trailing cattle to the mountain it is now time to continuously be with the herd and watch for sickness as well as keep cattle scattered through out their pastures. Keeping cattle scattered ensures that they will not over use forage in any area of the pasture. To do so, weContinue reading “Intern Andrew Plays Doctor”
