photoblog image Cattle Ranch

Cattle Ranch

Abandoned feedlot.

 

Cattle were brought in from the open range, fattend on corn and corn silage and given antibiotics.

 

Not as big and intense as the industrial CAFOs (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) of the midwest but none the less the same concept and process.

 

This is the ramp where the fattened cattle were loaded onto trucks for market.

 

If you are intersetd in learning more i suggest you read "The Omnivore's Dilemma" by Michael Pollan.

A feedlot? I thought it is the outhouse of the raging bull tongue Still some great pictures to be had at this farm. The angle you used works well.
John Eagle: Ha Ha, yup... "I coulda' have been a contender"... oh different raging bull tongue Does kinds look like an outhouse now that you mention it. Out in the middle of the sage brush.
