The trailing of the sheep

Trailing off the Routt National Forest

Trailing off the Routt National Forest

October 1st is the off-date for our National Forest grazing permits–Medicine Bow and Routt; sheep and cattle. Since several herds are involved, we have to stage the trailing, in coordination with our Range Conservationists and neighbors, who are also trailing. Here is one band of ewes and lambs heading down from summer grazing on the Routt. We dodged a couple of fires, and had to change our rotation, but all in all, it was a good summer. Thanks to all our crew and the federal folks who work with us.
