Cooking in the West
April 22, 2022
This last week of moisture came as a blessing and a curse. There were undoubtedly large death losses of young livestock in the areas that were hit by days of blizzard conditions, but in some areas like here in our neck of the woods, the moisture was such a blessing that it outweighed the curse part. With this moisture boost, many ranchers will be trying to slip some farming in instead of sleep and between calving, feeding, branding, fencing, and all the other spring work. Farming is often a high-speed, high-stress form of diversification that causes a lot of laundry and mental problems.
