Furry Critter Gathers Heifers

Furry Critter Gathers Heifers

If you are looking for a new ranch hand you may not have to look very far. In fact, you may just want to head down to the creek and see if your local water dwelling neighborhood beaver is around.

Recently Saskatchewan rancher Adrienne Ivey was checking heifers when she and her husband discovered that their 150 heifers were following a beaver across their pasture. Talk about an easy way to move curious heifers!

In an interview with CTV News Ivey said that “the cattle came over the hill “bunched together,” which was “very unusual when they have so much room to be out moving around,” Ivey said in an interview with on Tuesday. “It wasn’t until we got to the very front of the herd, that we could see what all the commotion was about.”

Wyoming Ranchers Win Right to Be Heard to Defend Against Grizzly Bears Predation

3/20/2018 9:39:00 AM
DENVER, CO. Today, a federal judge agreed that Wyoming ranchers add an important voice to the discussion over how to deal with the rebounded grizzly bear population around Yellowstone National Park. For decades, ranchers such as Charles C. Price and Mary E. Thoman have dealt with the deadly and dangerous effects of the growing grizzly bear population in their backyards but will finally be able to join with the court in ensuring all parties know the true effects of the grizzly bear. Mr. Price and Ms. Thoman, and their fellow ranchers lose countless numbers of livestock due to grizzly bear kills every year. Mr. Price and other ranchers in the Upper Green River Valley lost 71 cattle to confirmed grizzly bear kills in 2017 alone. Ms. Thoman and her family have not only lost countless sheep to grizzly bear kills, but also one of the family’s shepherds was mauled by a female grizzly bear in 2010. Those trying to make an honest living in rural western Wyoming are forced to expend a vast amount of money to try to protect themselves, their employees, and their livelihoods from the unrestrained predation by the ever-growing grizzly bear population. >> Read More
