A HEAT WAVE
Category: Live from the Ranch
 Yesterday's high temperature of almost 30 degrees was a much welcomed return to almost seasonal averages.  Tuesday and Wednesday's daytime high's were 5 and 2 degrees respectively, with wind chills ranging from 15-30 below.  We are still having to break ice and feed hay however, this is small potatoes compared to what the good people of the midwest and northeast are still enduring.
GO PAC GO!

 In addition to figuring and plotting all the grazing schemes for the different herds, the ranch staff has been hammering out a calendar of operations. A detailed weekly work schedule that is extended three months out is an invaluable tool that keeps our crew on the same page and our eyes on the ball. This very schedule may, in fact, be invaluable to some of YOU, our viewers, for it contains our 2011 branding schedule!
As it stands now, we will be branding weekly from the last week of March,beginning Monday the 28th, through the end of May with the exception of the first week in May. Brandings are always a huge focal point for those of our guest that get to participate in one. They involve riding and gathering up a herd of cows and calves, holding up the herd horseback and assisting the crew in flanking, branding, castrating, dehorning, and ear notching the calves. 
Aside from the work, there is always wonderful fellowship and a real sense of accomplishment. So check your calendars and consider a real working ranch experience.

Go Packers!
