An afternoon at the slaughterhouse

An afternoon at the slaughterhouse

Have you ever been to a slaughterhouse? It’s where cattle become beef. It’s the step that can’t be skipped whether it’s grass-finished beef, organic beef, the beef at Safeway, or at Bill the Butcher. If someone tries to convince you otherwise, they are probably taking full advantage of Washington’s liberalized law on recreational marijuana. This … Continue reading

Birthday Party Beef Brisket

Birthday Party Beef Brisket

Ranch Baby turned One (click here for gratuitous cake-face pics). According to my Babycenter.com emails, I should probably change that moniker to “Ranch Toddler”, but it’s my blog, and I don’t have to do nothing. And if I call him RB until he’s 25, I can because I’m the mom. I birthed him, fed him, … Continue reading

Weaning

Weaning

***Warning***TMI to follow. I’ll try to get the breastfeeding stuff out of the way quickly and vaguely, but skip the beginning if you’re a dude and uncomfortable with the topic. In any case, Ranch Baby is off the mom-juice and onto the moo-juice completely now. When a feeding-math fail resulted in needing to buy a … Continue reading

Where’s Waldo: Ranch Edition

Some of another rancher’s yearlings will be shipped back to where they came from, as the pastures out here are drying up. … Continue reading

Water and the Ranch

Water and the Ranch

I was recently on a conference call with a group of other young farmers and ranchers in Washington, and while we were waiting for others to join, the topic of weather cropped up. In social scenarios, the weather is a common topic (especially amongst west siders if there has been more than like two consecutive … Continue reading

Calving season The Daily Cowman style

Calving season The Daily Cowman style

It isn’t just me. Baby calves have a magical power over everyone they come in contact with. There is just something about seeing a healthy baby calf that makes you “Happy Happy Happy” like Si Robertson eating a hot donut (yes, we are a #DuckDynasty obsessed household, PUMPED for the new season). In fact, I’d … Continue reading

Food Trucks are popular out here

Food Trucks are popular out here

What? You thought Seattle and other metros cornered the market on restaurants with wheels? Maybe not.  This food truck is aptly just called “the feed truck” and it makes the rounds to eager diners every day Septemberish – Marchish. Or basically, when Mother Nature’s Restaurant is closed (the grass ain’t growing), the feed truck is … Continue reading

About the Blog: I’m Bridget. Beef makes my world go ‘round. If I’m not talking about beef, writing about beef, raising beef, dreaming about beef, cooking beef, eating beef, or doing the related dishes, then I’m probably sleeping. Or cheating on it with bacon. Or cheese. On this blog, I plan to share stories and … Continue reading
