#FridaysOnTheFarm: Pastures Bloom with Healthier Cattle, Wildflowers

From the kitchen table to the boardroom table, USDA brings people together across the nation for: healthier food, natural resources, and people; a stronger agricultural industry; and economic growth, jobs, and innovation. Each Friday, meet those farmers, producers, and landowners through our #FridaysOnTheFarm stories.

Running the Ranch

Pickup trucks, working dogs, cowboy hats, and running shoes. These were the diverse sights I registered as my eyes scanned the 100-plus crowd gathered under Montana’s Big Sky this past Saturday.

You could tell right away this wasn’t a typical ranching operation, and it certainly wasn’t going to be your normal run. It was a mixture of both, aptly named the Montana Ranch Run, now in its fourth year.
