2018 Gathering Yearlings:

The culmination of a year’s worth of work starts with gathering yearlings for harvest, to supply our Mountain Beef family and friends with an annual supply of nutritious grass-fed, grass-finished beef.  Our teenagers set out on horseback to gather and trail 150 head of yearlings, which are 18 month old calves, that graze summer pasture on the Zumwalt prairie.


They trailed them 16 miles to the home ranch where the mobile slaughter unit harvests the yearlings.  This is one of the many responsibilities our children have on the family ranch.
