This week on the ranch…
There’s Wesley, working with Josh to get stock water setup for the beeves on their newest paddock over at the home ranch. As spring approaches and things begin to warmup, the beeves are less likely to want to eat this dry stockpile grass, so the goal is to take advantage of it while things are still getting cold at night. The stockpile is a great way to supplement in addition to the hay we feed every day. The stuff they don’t eat will be absorbed and help feed the soil.
Water’s flowing! This particular stock tank is filled from a warm spring just on the edge of this field. They ran hose and used a portable Honda pump (the same kind we use on the range every summer) to get water flowing from the spring into the tank. They’ll be checking to make sure things are running smoothly and that it doesn’t freeze up every day when teh herd is checked and fed.
Meanwhile in the Lemhi Valley, construction continues on the new freezer. That’s Montana, measuring before cutting one of the pieces that will eventually make up the walls. We’ll be sharing more on this project down the road – but it is a great option to save money by not buying a costly freezer.
The gluing process is quite lengthy and meticulous. Scott, Montana, and Jed have been working hard to get this thing put together.
Scott, manager of the ranch in the Lemhi Valley, took this photo on a daily herd check. Right now there are mostly late calving mama’s over there. In just a few short weeks there will be calves running around as well!

This week’s story: “Bees, Blossoms and Beauty”
It’s late night on a Friday, and warmer airs finally cool to frozen as the faint crescent moon rises in the East.
Our cattle graze stockpile grasses and windrowed lines of hay the crew fed. Both grass sources are from organic pastures raised by us on Alderspring, and must pack some serious flavor and energy by the way the cattle happily graze the forage down…and by the condition they are in even at this late winter stage.
After years of managing the grass through short duration, long rest period grazing, we find that our cattle maintain higher levels of wellness. And it’s not only them: it’s also the badgers, the squirrels, the rough legged hawks, the foxes, the birds and the bees.
Come with me on a story of what Caryl and I found two years ago on a flower-rich spring on the steep mountainsides of Idaho under snow-capped peaks; we weren’t the only ones enjoying the flowers!

And that’s it for this week!
Thanks again for partnering in what we do!
