Thank goodness its Friday! On Fridays I will post a photo from the ranch and discuss the subject. Take a gander and see if you can guess what we are looking at… Did you know, April is the peak for monthly internet searches for “farm fence”? Maybe it’s because so many people are getting Spring Fever […]
Here’s a short video of our cattle working corrals after running a herd through for vaccinations today. This is only a temporary setup with portable panels, but I thought it’d give ya an idea of what a working system looks like.
In Arkansas, it seems as if we went an entire week with tornadic storms, high winds, and flooding. For the month of April, we have received just over 20 inches of rain at the ranch. That pretty much catches us up with our 15 inch deficiet from last year’s drought and a dry start to […]
At dinner today I poured a glass of milk, and I got thinking… Do more people like their milk in a glass or plastic cup? Ice or no ice?

What comes to your mind when I say Ranch Life?
“Beef!” At least that was my step-mom’s answer. (In her defense, she was in the kitchen.) What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “Ranch Life”? Hope ya’ll had a great Easter weekend with family, friends, and good food. The older I get the more it seems I rely on funerals and […]
Thank goodness its Friday! On Fridays I will post a photo from the ranch and discuss the subject.

Tall, lanky birds with long, dark colored beaks, wading around water sources, looking for fish. […]
Folks, I don’t know about ya’ll, but this April is bringing some wicked weather. Conditions in Arkansas have been dry since our 9.5 inches of rain on Christmas Eve 2009. 2010 ended up being more than 15 inches in the hole and at the beginning of this week we were already 3 inches behind average for 2011.
