I was raised on cattle ranch and studied agriculture at the University of Idaho before joining the Navy. I currently own 5 cow/calf black angus pairs, and though I have a place to feed out and calve from November through April, I am looking for summer pasture. I am looking for summer pasture to not only run my current pair, but I am looking to expand to 25 - 35 pair. My small operation is based out of Helena, MT, but am willing to trailer to summer pasture if it fits my budget and scope of operations.
