Branding Greasy 2021

(Click to enlarge two feet)

The high clouds had given way to sunshine by the time we finished branding a little bunch of calves in Greasy yesterday.  Well off the road, it’s a luxury to be among good friends and neighbors who are exceptional help, folks who know how to make the work fun.

Though dusty, there’s a little more green showing at this elevation (2,200’) where we have received 1.72” of rain thus far this season, much like the beginning of the 2013-14 drought year where we had less than 1.5” of rain in Greasy through the month of January.  Our 10-day forecast is dry.

  1. Sigh. We have even less rain in Arizona (Gilbert), but then we live in a desert and aren’t trying to raise cattle.

    • When this dry trend will end seems distant. We know ‘trying’ to raise cattle is a breakeven situation most years, but under these circumstances we can’t last long. We are on the cusp of desert, a little over a hundred miles south. We know too that this is resilient ground.
