What Ranching In The U.S. Is Really Like!

Mar 30, 2024
foreigner good morning Angus, how are you friend? Good morning Damaris is working at the hospital today so Silas can go hang out with grandma and in our basement we thought it just clogged the sump pump drain, we didn't have a sump pump installed. I still didn't think we'd need one, so we've never had that much rain, nine inches, that's very, very rare for us, but now I guess we know we need a sump pump, so we're going to get one. one put it there and hopefully that will eliminate the problem and if I did a little bit of dirt work and stuff it would also help just with the drainage and everything, and a couple of you reached out and asked me how you can support us, which It's super generous.

what ranching in the u s is really like...

Check out this winter eye now, this winter is going great, we planted it last fall and it was dormant over the winter and it started shooting up this spring, so it's about the first week of June, this is ready to be cut today , let's go after cutting it, this was our first year planning Winter Rye, we are very pleased with the result, as you can see, some of these shoots are beyond my chest. I think we're going to get a good tonnage out of this. We're just going to rescue it all and feed it like hay to our cows.

We'll mix it with some silage and stuff, but it matures too much. I guess the cows don't like it very much and it can take a little toxicity, but if we cut it now it's at the perfect stage. uh, it should be excellent food for our cows. Doc is trying to avoid a little illness, so we leave him behind to cut hay, but my dad and I head up. In fact, we took two semi-loads of our two-year-old son to some of our private land for the summer in that area where we were fixing the fence with everything, now we're getting them up, so let's unload them, make sure. they pair up just for content and then we're probably going to fix a fence just park here yeah park here so that's a win okay download the overseas conduit they like it there too much okay don't you know where. they still go, are you happy with the other two year olds with the way the Cavs look?

They always look gangly because they are just growing. He is a two year old boy. Yes, it is difficult to feed a calf and a girl exactly. Foreigners everyone, hey, hey, the trucks are all unloaded and leaving, it's time to have some lunch. Thanks honey for the sandwiches. I apreciate it. Chicken salad sandwiches are always good. My dad and I arrived on our leave from Baskella. Let's bring some cows here. in the next video, uh, just fixing a fence, we have to go around the entire permit every summer, we fix about 120 miles of fence between the permits and our private land, so maybe we're already halfway done with the fence repair, so we still have a long way to go.
To get this oil permit and the shine crossing permit, you still have to do it for those of you who are new to the canal or haven't heard me talk about this before we move on to our cows with four different grazing permits from the Forest Service in the summer, not all of our cows, we have another group on some well, two other groups on our private land, but most of our cows have service grazing permits, so this is land that is owned from the forest service, but technically if you're a US Citizen and you're a taxpayer, you own this Lance, we're basically raising our cows on your guys' land.
There's a lot of controversy about the fact that they started giving out grazing permits when I think in the early 1900s, maybe the late 1800s, um just for grazing. because there was a huge fire risk for the mountainous areas, so these crazy permits have been in place for a long time, but we work very closely with the forest service to make sure nothing is overgrazed or overgrazed. insufficient, so this Forest Service permits vary in size, the smallest is about 8,000 acres, the largest is probably 16,000 acres and it all depends on the permit, how much grass there is, how much of it is Big steep hills, how much wildlife is in that area and that just dictates The number of cows we can put here is about 15,000 acres.
We can put 150 cows here for the summer. Another is 16,000 acres. We can have 200 cows there, so it all depends on how much wildlife is around. How much grass is there? around how forested the areas are, how steep the hills are, basically how much grass there is and how many cows can graze without depleting resources for wildlife and so on, all the permits are divided into different pastures, so this premiere has five different pastures in it, um, if you can remember, last year I brought my friends here and we threw them into this permit, in fact, this was the first pasture we went into, if you can remember I brought Owen and Jackson this year, we will win.
We are not going to enter this pasture first, we are going to rotate to another one where we already have the fence fixed and ready to go, but we still have to fix the fence and all the pastures because we will rotate them to go to all the pastures during the summer and the clouds are gathering, we could get rain, so the way to get these permits is to buy by the number of cows that are on the permits, we pay a high fee when we buy the permit as a recently sold one. I think it was a 100 Cal permit.
It sold for about four thousand dollars a pair, so you don't pay for the land, you pay for the number of cows on it. I know it's confusing, but basically you buy the permit and you buy. who had the cows, that many cows with the permit, so when my dad bought his last permit, he had to buy it well, it was this permit, he had to buy 150 cows from the people who owned it and then those cows were a pain head. the ass ended up selling them and just breeding ours to eventually put them here so we pay a big fee to get the permits and then we also pay annual fees to lease the permits year after year and then the permit holder harasses the rancher, we all do it . from the fence we cut all the trees from the fences we take care of the water, but the forest service shares a little of the costs of supplies like wires and posts and they also help with some water projects to get new water. tanks or solar tanks, all of these permits are multi-use, which means the logging companies are logging them with bad service contracts and permits and if you ever come to the Black Hills, you ride four wheelers or ATVs around the trails that are your Forest Service land and it's through a lot of our permits so be sure to close those gates but if you see cows on some of those trails they very well could be ours or be ranchers like us so You should comment on ranchers grazing in puppy pubs, let me know

what

you think.
I'd like to hear from both sides um I know it's a little controversial. I think that's a really good thing, otherwise this whole thing would be all weeds, there wouldn't really be any grass, it would probably be covered in trees and the forest service would just be spraying a bunch of pesticides to control the weeds and the life population. wild would probably be decreasing, so that's my opinion, that's

what

I think, but I'm a little biased, starting to rain a little feels pretty good, although I'm not going to lie, it's pretty hot, but I'll stay under a tree until it passes I don't know how loud it will sound good, it will keep raining and it's time for me to go home.
Nice rain to help the grass grow, although Silas, did you have one? Good day with grandma today. I think so. She had fun too. Maris doesn't get off work until seven, so you guys and I are having a little kids' night. Damaris works about one night a week, so just to keep her and her nursing license. He likes to go out and see some people you know, but yeah, thank you all for coming. I really appreciate it. I hope everybody is fine. We'll see you next time. Say goodbye, Bobby Foreign.
