  • 2024 Word of the Year

    It’s can be hard to look at yourself and fairly assess your flaws. It’s actually easy to just avoid it altogether.

    In my work of self awareness and recognition that I can’t continue in the methods that I have, my word of the year is ‘present’ to focus on Seth, my kids and balancing personal life time with work life time. I am not good at this.

    I am a doer, I have worked since I was little and I always feel the need to be doing something. While this is a good trait to have, like many things, too much of a good thing can be detrimental. And really, in business, doing just to do doesn’t get you anywhere farther.
  • Weaning Season at Thomas Cattle Company

    Weaning season is one of the busiest times of year on the ranch. It requires all hands on deck and makes for a few months of long days, and even longer nights. 

    Weaning is also one of the most rewarding times of the year. After a summer of the calves and their mothers grazing in the mountains, it’s time for them to come home. As ranchers, we have the gift of seeing how much they’ve changed and grown.

  • Thankful for Family

    “I’ve lived a good life.” My Grandpa Orren said that to me this weekend.

    Simple and to the point and seemed like a period on the sentence of life.

    The more I get into building this business and working to become a better version of myself in the process, the more I hear what he’s saying.
  • Utilizing Regenerative Agriculture with our Farm Partners

    We partner with many farmers like Russell Schiermeier, to implement regenerative agriculture practices that improve the soil health and organisms that live in the soil.
    .
    Cattle get a bad wrap in many circles but they truly can be a part of the solution to climate issues and improving soil health in our world.
    .
    We can’t wait to share more of this story with you! 
    .
    We see our job as ranchers to not only raise great beef but also to regenerate and restore the land our cattle roam on. We do this through regenerative farming, improving the habitat for Sage grouse and other wild bird species through partnerships with NRCS and the fish and game. We can all be a part of the solution and preserve what we have so that our children can ranch and carry on the next generation of farming and ranching. ❤️🌍
  • Another Trip Around the Sun, Another Reflection

    As I sit down to write this blog post, I am filled with a sense of gratitude and reflection. It's hard to believe that another year has passed as I inch closer to the 40 year mark. I've grown as a person, mom, and especially a business owner. I still have a very long way to go. This journey is a day by day process and I layer my experiences (good and bad) onto each other one day at a time. Your loyalty and trust in our brand mean the world to me, and we are so grateful for your support of our ranch family and Thomas Cattle Company.
  • A Legacy as Great as the Grand Ole Opry

    Recently we traveled to Nashville, TN to celebrate Seth's 40th birthday with a group of our good friends and siblings.  It was so much fun and WAY different than I was expecting. Note to self: Luke Combs is VERY popular and his concert will fill up the whole town of Nashville.

    We visited many local historical sights and also went to the Grand Ole' Opry. That was an amazing experience. Each artist played 3 songs and spoke about their careers in between the songs.  There was something that really struck me when listening to them. 
  • mRNA Vaccine Use at Thomas Cattle Company

    We've had this question so much recently: Do you use vaccines that use mRNA technology? The short answer, no. And actually no ranchers in the USA do, because there are currently none that are approved for use in beef cattle.  

    If those are available in the future, we wouldn't elect to use them.
