This footage was shot on the Flying W, a fourth generation ranch in Colorado where they still move cattle to the high country the same way they have for generations – on horseback. We have to cross a 10,000 ft pass in Gunnison, CO in late Novemeber and this year temps dropped below zero and a blizzard rolled in. The documentary I shot this for never came to fruition so I re-edited to music by my friend, Michael Martin Murphey as a Christmas carol.
A Handbook for Ranch Managers. In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.
