Commercial Cattle Operations
In the old days we drove the cattle up to the summer pastures, NOW we haul from the home ranch at Nezperce, Idaho, South to New Meadows, Idaho for the summer range seen below.
Our year starts with the cows calving under our supervision in February-March here in Nezperce.
The calves are worked in late May or June then shipped with their dams to their Summer Pasture in New Meadows, Idaho. They spend all summer on irrigated and non-irrigated pasture.

When the fall run starts our 'growthy' calves are weaned & marketed:
We sell our calves out of the field to order buyers
They are sold weaned and worked or straight off the cow.
Approximately 80 to 90 calves are sold each
We raise our own feed here on the farm in Nezperce, Idaho.

"We raise all our own Alfalfa & Grass hay, Grain Crops are: Wheat, Barley, and 'NEW HULLESS' Oats."
