Fall 2014 Weaning and Gathering Cattle on Montana Ranches

They say a photo is worth a thousand words, and that’s an important part of sharing our stories of ranch life in Montana with those who want to learn more about where their beef comes from!

Over the past few weeks, we have been seeing several reports from ranchers bringing cattle home for the Fall, weaning calves and shipping! It’s a busy and rewarding season for ranchers across the state and we want to share a few of those scenes with you. Have photo of Montana ranch life to share with us? Include a brief description of what’s happening and send them to ryan@mtbeef.org. We love to share them with everyone!
