Like everyone else we are knee deep in snow and cold temperatures. As we bundled up in layers to feed cows and complete other farm chores I was reminded of Randy in A Christmas Story with his thick snowsuit that made it difficult to move. Thankfully, insulated clothing has improved over the years!

As I reflect on this past year…..which started off cold, then very wet, then very dry…..the perfect storm for an overwhelming number of w**ds that we couldn’t kill….a calf lost to a cougar, a premature calf with a strong will to live, 15 calves born, 11 steers sold….I am left with the following….

I am blessed to have a husband with a backhoe who is not afraid of projects! In previous years our cows and horses watered out of a spring all winter. At times we would need to break ice for them. Last winter we bought an ice fishing drill to get through the ice because it froze so hard. I don’t think it would have worked this winter - too cold for too long. This fall we installed an automatic waterer with heat - completed right before it turned cold. I am thankful every day for the completion of this project!

We are also blessed with great neighbors! Our neighborhood excels at self-sufficiency, AND it is nice to know our neighbors are willing to lend a hand if it is ever needed.

We are also blessed with wonderful friends, family and neighbors who offer advice, rent pasture, rent hay ground, supply hay, haul cattle, help work cattle, buy calves, plow snow, let us know when our cows are out of bounds, and let us know when predators are in the area (seems to be a constant these days).

Finally, thank you to our customers! We appreciate your business, positive feedback and referrals! Of course we could not do this without you!

Best wishes for a WARM Merry Christmas and a peaceful new year,
Michelle & Curt Wasco

For those wondering how much meat you take home when buying locker beef……

Consumers who buy a live animal from a local cattle producer or 4-H member for custom processing are often surprised by the amount of beef they receive, the amount of freezer space needed and that they did not get back the entire live weight of the animal in retail cuts. This article will discuss ho...

Thank you for taking the time to check out our Tinderbox Ranch FB page!

For several years we have raised steers for our own use, and for family and friends. We received postitive feedback on the meat we raised. During the last two years we were able to spend more time at home (like many other people) and realized how much work was needed on our farm - Fencing, w**d control, thinning trees, and improving pasture just to start.

Last year, with the drought, we ran out of fenced open pasture so we turned the cows out in our timber. Over the course of the summer we noticed the cows were significant contributors to completing our project list. They eliminated patches of canadian thistle, ate down knapw**d on old log landings, cleared brush, limbed trees and made some nice trails in areas that were previously impassable. The cows are now an official part of our land management strategy.

We have expanded our herd from 5 cows to 20 and hope to expand our customer base for locker beef to match.

Our calves are born from late February through mid September. They are raised on open and timbered pastures, fed local hay as needed and supplemented with Non GMO feed until they are finished at about 18 months of age. This year we have 14 angus and angus cross yearlings we expect to have ready for locker beef this coming Sept/Oct through Feb/March.

We primarily work with Allen Marshall at Copper Mine Meats for processing and have received positive feedback on both the meat and the processing.
