Grazing Cattle Birdwell and Clark Ranch

Yes, there have been significant changes at the Birdwell & Clark Ranch since the website was launched.

First, the drought of 2011 forced Emry to combine the three herds mentioned in the original website text into one big herd. He did so because we were running out of grass and the pastures needed as much rest as possible. This resulted in one herd of 3,300 head. Emry moved this herd as many as 3 - 4 times a day depending on the size and condition of the paddock. Those first days were full of excitement, intense concentration, and pure joy watcing the herd adjust to the new routine. We were able to hold out until August '11 when the last of the cattle were sold and shipped due to the dry, dry conditions.

Yes, it is a snowy and icy and bitter cold day at the Birdwell  and Clark Ranch.  Of course the buzz is that we are not alone.  This is a monster storm that covers 2,000 miles, hundreds of cities, thousands of miles of countryside, and millions of people.  Nope, we are not alone.  It just feels that way!

We are excited to announce that Birdwell & Clark Ranch is now on Facebook. Stop by the Ranch Page some time to see what we're up to or  to say hello. We look forward to seeing you there.
