The cows are coming! The cows are coming! Now that June has come and gone, the cattle have been making their way into the valley weekly. The riders, Hilary, Marcie, and our new intern, Melissa, are now riding through herds of cattle, as well as scouting for wildlife activity.

The past two weeks the range riders have been concluding the wildlife tracking portion of range riding. Cattle are now starting to come back into the valley, so the riders will begin riding through and “herding up” cattle once in the morning and evening. This helps allow the cattle to be and act like a herd of bison, keeping calves close and standing off to predators in an event of an encounter with a predator.
