A compulation of stories and tales from ranchers committed to sustainable agriculture

Cows & Caterpillars… a great way to spend time with the kids

Every year I swear I will take more time to enjoy June and make it slow down… Every year it goes by in a flash, even though we have the longest daylight length. I guess that’s because there is lots always on the go and a ton of things to see and enjoy…. especially with the kids. This year has been one of the best in our 10 years on this ranch. The grass is going from knee deep to belly deep in record time thanks to all the steady rains and showers we have been getting…Needless to say our grazing management needs to be top end to keep up with all mother nature is producing. This year we also are having a little nature wonder with an enormous tent caterpillar plague that literally has cleaned off all the leave for hundreds of square kilometers… the leaves will grow back, but in the meantime it is a strange view seeing green pastures and no leaves on the trees… a wonderland for curious kids and a crazy dad.
