Cattle Ranch

Eventually it became too expensive to run a small feedlot.

 

I imagine the the industrialization of farming and ranching were responsible.

 

"Get big or get out." as Earl Butz was quoted as saying (Secratary of Agriculture under Nixon).

 

The ranch turned to raising corn and alfalfa to sell for feed.

 

This barn was used to store alfalfa hay.

So what is happening on this ranch now?
John Eagle: Funny, I just realize I only show the old and discarded parts of the farm/ranch. My dad and uncle still farm it, mainly alfalfa for hay.
