2013 Blogging Update - Part 2

New Ranching Experience -
Preg Checking Buffalo
We helped Lemhi Ranches preg check buffalo last March.  It was quite the experience.  I worked up on a five foot high catwalk and helped move the buffalo through the chute.  I was in awe at their massive size.  But at the same time I couldn't believe how many times they would back up and bang at the same place in order to get out.  The catwalk was a part of the facilities that were constructed to work the buffalo efficiently and safely.  We all let out a collective sigh of relief as we finished; that the work was done and that there were no mishaps.
