I have not been shot in a crap game or by a jealous husband. Neither have I been confined to a FEMA camp nor taken to Gitmo.
This coming week, some friends and I will be visiting mutual friends on their ranch in Chihuahua, Mexico. We should be back in the saddle by Monday, 9 May.
Yours for freedom in our lifetimes. — jtl, 419
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.
