We've got two places. Our home ranch is located north and west of Delta Utah. It's a half section and we're developing it to have the full place irrigated.
Our north place is located in a valley south and west of Salt Lake City. It's a lease that has roughly 600 acres of irrigated pastures. Our winters can be tough, but we have good springs and falls so our forage can begin to grow early and keep growing late. The rest of the place is native pasture. This is our second year on it and we've implemented all the programs we've talked about on this site on that ranch. Because there's plenty of water on the north place, all delivered through pivots, we're going to focus the operation there.
We handle cattle very quietly and after a bit, they generally can be called almost wherever we need them to go. Of course, we work from a horse every day so the cattle are quickly used to being handled by riders.
Our facilities include a certified scale and we've built new corrals on the north ranch to give us the kind of easy handling system we have at home.
Of course, we have health protocols in place and work with our local vet to keep them up to date. However, if you have a health program in place we can either adapt our to mesh with yours or, if yours has worked for you we can use it. We'll work with you to do what's best for your cattle. We do use implants where possible, but if you're in a program that doesn't allow them we'll sure work with you.
Chuck has a lot of experience with individual animal ID and we can use UHF tags in the cattle. UHF allows us to quickly scan and capture every tag, even from a distance, and gives us the ability to account for all animals and record individual data as needed. That works well with natural and organic program because we can reliably identify animals that fall out of the program and ensure that they aren't shipped with the majority that are still eligible.
Because all our pastures are right at the corrals and scale we'll be weighing monthly and giving you a progress report. In addition, all records are online so you can see what animals have been treated within twenty four hours of treatment.
Our corral system is designed to take advantage of the realities of handling cattle quietly: give them someplace to go where they feel they're "getting away from you" (relieve pressure), take advantage of their tendency to want to go back where they came from you,
We can handle over 1,000 head at a time in the facilities. We have the scale and squeeze in one location so we can use a single Bud Box to feed them,
The system is designed so that we can perform three operations simultaneously. We can sort cattle (on the left half), then feed them to the squeeze or scale (in the center) and then from there they go into the corrals and alley on the right side where they can be loaded onto a semi. This system makes for quick, quiet, and safe work.
