Tuesday – (cont. – ’til 11:00pm!)

Julie Hansmire fills us in on the particulars of running her 3 bands of impressive Merino ewes and their lambs near Chapel Peak, Eagle, CO.1100 ewes and their 1400 lambs met us on the road to ranch headquarters. Assisted by her ranch manager they were getting ready to sort lambs off their mothers and load them to ship to feedlots on Wednesday. A well managed grazing operation with attention not only to economics but to land stewardship, communication with land owners and education to the local community about the value of sheep on the land.
