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”

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.

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.

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!

Mary continues to learn with the Perry’s

This week at Perry Cattle Company, I am finally starting to get into the swing of things…. sort of! I still make plenty of mistakes, but I am getting a better handle on some of the basic tasks that happen on a ranch. It was a very exciting week and provided lots of chances toContinue reading “Mary continues to learn with the Perry’s”

Rangeland Intern Noah Schick: Storms, Landslides, Wrestling & Butterflies at the Red Canyon Ranch

This week Red Canyon ranch saw the biggest thunderstorm since 2010.  Over the course of one night it received two and a half inches of rain.
