|Hillsides covered with cattle is a common sight in the |
Flinthills of East Central and Southeast Kansas
|Miles upon miles of grassy hills, lakes and occasional creek draws |
provide for breathtaking views!!!!
|As the sun sets in Southeast Kansas, I am so thankful for the creation God |
has provided for us to delight in and the land He gives us to care for and manage
|Riding a 4 wheeler over hundreds of acres to collect soil samples |
is quite entertaining and enjoyable, despite the monotony of the job
Following our visit, we were taken for a roadside tour to view neighboring backgrounding operations, including a 7,000 acre ranch that grazed over 15,000 head of cattle this last year and had the goal of running 30,000 head a year in the future. I must say seeing a 1,900 acre section of land in one fenced piece as part of this ranch was truly a sight to behold.

And by small I'm talking a couple thousand head of cattle grazed and sold each year!
Until next time, you can find me off the beaten path and ridin' for the brand!!!
