Farming and ranching plays a
major part in the economy of the area. The irrigated valleys are devoted
to the production of Alfalfa and Western Wheatgrass hay (Blue Joint) to
feed the cattle through out the winter. In the hills you will find the
cattle grazing, with the wheat fields waving nearby.
The industry is dependent upon
many things such as the weather and whims of the market. But those who
make their living from the land, endure all of challenges thrown at
them, in order to care for the land that they love.
"There is a beauty in the land if you have
eyes to see it,
a sort of foreverness that reaches the end of sight."
