    best to lend a hand and enjoy the ride After the cows were gathered Mike and a few others stayed in their saddles to sort the moms from the babies I was given the task of operating a gate and counting cows which was right in my wheelhouse I may not be a competent horsewoman but I can count Later that morning friends and neighbors showed up to help with the actual branding If you ever have the opportunity to experience a branding don t skip it The riders rope and drag the calves to the fire and everyone gets to wrestle calves even me I also took the opportunity to get in a little work with Eddie He s pretty attached to Mike s horse Lorie Darlin and hates being separated from her So while Mike was busy roping I made Eddie trot away from Lorie Darlin and the crowd again and again He was not happy with me in the beginning but by the end of our ride he had calmed down and I think we made some good progress After the last few calves were roped and branded everyone made their way to the barn for a tasty meal and good company another awesome part of the branding experience By that time I had dust in my eyes and ears and my whole body was tired and sore And there was still more work to be done The cows and their freshly branded babies had to be pushed back out to pasture My one day of ranch work though fun and exciting was exhausting I have a newfound appreciation for the men and women who spend a lifetime devoted to ranching My job pushes me in a variety of ways but I rarely get home at the

    a passionate hunter enthusiastic outdoorsman and seemed to truly love life Though I didn t know him well I know many of his close friends and it is apparent how much he is missed When tragedy strikes in rural Montana it almost always hits close to home Our communities are close We have a police scanner at The Madisonian s office and when it chirps now my heart stops My first year as a Madison County resident I didn t recognize any names and I hardly recognized any places that crackled across the scanner When I called the sheriff s office or highway patrol to get information about a crash the names they gave me were faceless That s not true anymore These days if I don t immediately recognize a name I end up knowing someone who does It s always hard to lose a friend or family member it s even hard to lose acquaintances but it was incredible to see Ty s community gather to celebrate his life in Ronan Friends and family shared stories about him his brother put together a slideshow of his life and everyone focused on remembering the man he was instead of letting grief rule the day This week focus on the positives If you re a Panther or Wildcat fan congratulate the basketball players on their season And if you re a Falcon or Mustang fan it s not over yet If you can t make it to Hamilton to support our teams in person send good vibes their way Abigail Categories Opinion Tags Abigail Dennis Editor Madison County Montana and The Madisonian Bookmark the permalink Leave a comment Recommended Articles Divisional basketball roundup Volleyball Round Up County rivals face off Thoughts on being objective and school spirit Mustangs and Falcons

  • Long lashes and wobbly legs | The Madisonian
    to my cozy bed I m not the one out in the elements giving it my all to bring calves into the world Ranchers have an often thankless job Like many their work lives don t start at 8 a m and end at 5 p m Work is their life and I have a lot of respect for that As for the reality of calving season and what it means for ranchers Rebecca Ramsey Ruby Watershed Coordinator said it better than I can in a column earlier this month Here s what she wrote The ranchers then have a big job ahead of them once calves start coming They keep meticulous records of when each cow or heifer is bred A heifer is a female bovine who has never had a calf All the pregnant ladies need to be watched especially the first time heifers so they are grouped by due dates and kept close so the rancher can check on them multiple times a day The ranchers are at the ready to lend a hand if needed and to treat the umbilical stump to prevent infection and tag their ears for identification Our ranching neighbors go to great lengths to keep every baby alive They may be out there with towels to help the cow as she licks a calf dry Or the calf may be brought indoors and put on heating pads electric blankets put under heat lamps or even have a hair dryer taken to them And if a calf is found later that has gotten very cold they are sometimes brought right into the family bathtub to be submerged in warm water to bring up their body temperature Then fully dried with all the aforementioned options before going outside with momma again Once a calf is born and dried next it has to stand and suckle within an hour or so to get the important nourishing colostrum the first milk that is vital to their immune system If they are kept too long from their mother or if they have a mother that rejects them or they have a hard time standing and nursing on their own the rancher will use a milk replacer formula to bottle or bucket feed the calf Not only do ranchers try to protect their newly born stock from cold and ensure they are nourished they also have to ward off the scavengers such as magpies and ravens who literally sometimes try to pluck their eyes out and protect them from predators such as coyote wolves and domestic dogs Particularly when the calves are very young What Rebecca wrote really resonates with me sometimes I have to remind myself that calving season isn t all fun and games I m fortunate enough to get to revel in the excitement of it all without the effort and anxiety that comes with helping calves survive Thanks to Rebecca s writing and many conversations with Mike I have a renewed appreciation for what
