I met my first rancher today. His cowboy hat probably should have given away his profession. I learned so many interesting facts from him. He said to raise one cow, it takes 40 acres. He has 10,000 acres, not all of the land belongs to him, some is government subsidized. When the weather is bad, cows still stay outside and roam the land. He has to drive 40 miles to get mail and 200 miles if he wants to get on a plane. Yea, Montana.
