Spring Roundup

Spring Roundup

Week of June 2nd, 2019
The Makings of a Cattle Roundup: By the middle of May, we will have received our yearling cattle from their winter pasture.  Typically, we have about 1500 head of spayed heifers on pasture in central California. The cattle will be trucked here when we have grass to support them, usually mid-May.
During the week of June 2nd,  we will begin trailing cattle to the forest pastures. This is a time that often appeals to many of our guests for various reasons. We are gathering and moving 1300 head of cattle in several groups and must use the horse effectively to get the job done and work together with the other riders.
Once we complete this transition from the mesa to the forest, and it usually takes 2-3 days, we begin moving the cattle every 5 to 10 days to new pastures. This continues throughout the season.
