Roundup and Release

For the past seventeen years the Cheyenne River Ranch (CRR) has been our home. The move from the Broken Heart Ranch (BHR) to the CRR was driven by three factors: 1) The land around the BHR was becoming very commercialized and there wasn't much opportunity for growth. 2) The CRR had opportunity for growth, where large landscape conservation would be possible. 3) The land on the CRR came with a 24,000 acre grazing permit on the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands.

Autumn

It’s that time of year again. This September came quickly and burst forth with a 77-degree drop in temperature. On Saturday, it was 106 degrees with the kids begging to go down to the river to swim, fish or just lie in the shallows. Tuesday morning it was 29 degrees with a crust of ice on the windshields.

Families First

September has always been a little stressful as a business owner. We have many requests for time off, with staff members trying to squeeze in the last of summer fun. It’s also back to school, with sporting practices or music lessons tacked on, adding extra for parents with children to juggle and making the first few weeks of the month a bit unpredictable. But this year, with the coronavirus pandemic still looming, it’s been, well - a real ****show to figure out.
