Voices from the Land • Unique Stories of Women in Ranching
Trailing of the Sheep
This year’s Sheep Tales Gathering will present unique stories from three different ranches in the West.
Marcia’s ranching story is steeped in her family’s Basque heritage, starting a ranch on her own in California. What began as a dairy farm, has now transitioned into one that produces fiber. Alongside Marcia will be
Julie’s story of continuing the family ranch after losing her husband. Although a hard-working rancher by day (and often night!) Julie tries to make time for a life outside of ranching in Colorado.
Also, not to be missed are the stories of the mother/daughter team of Andrée and Bianca, who manage the family’s commercial sheep and goat business, sharing a commitment to both targeted grazing and protecting the land from the threat of wildfire. This conversation will be moderated by multi-generation Idaho rancher, Mike Guerry.
