BeefTalk: On the Prairie, Listen, and Walk, Not Run
Kris Ringwall, Beef Specialist, NDSU Extension Service
To truly appreciate the wonders of the prairie, one must stop, look and listen. Believe it or not, the rough and tough rancher does that, perhaps discreetly, when moving cattle, parking trucks or checking the miles of fences. The majesty and silence of the prairie and the surrounding lands rival the various majestic wonders of the world. The flight of the lone butterfly, to be heard by no one, is in itself a sight left to the lone rancher on a sunny, windless day.
