Welcome! We all walk different roads in life. Our path includes cattle ranching. Here you will find my blog on living life on the land, recipes that we’ve used, low stress cattle handling techniques and other helpful tidbits. Our motto is: We let cows be cows. I hope to share with you our adventures and inspire you to live your own–whether that includes ranching or not. After visiting here, hopefully you’ll understand more of our heart and our desire to promote agriculture as a sustainable industry. I’ll be growing this sight regularly, so please don’t hesitate to follow me or visit again. Happy Trails!

Be sure and check out Progressive Cattleman’s website. You’ll find great info, tips, funny quips, as well as the best in industry standards.   www.progressivecattle.com
