Living on Champagne Creek Ranch is unique and rewarding. Whether waking at dawn to herd cows before the heat of the day or staying up late checking on a pregnant heifer, ranch life offers endless opportunities to learn. Our Spring 2016 semester coincided with one of Southern Idaho’s best winter snow packs in years! Keeping the animals sheltered and safe, fed, and watered took on top priority as some of the winter storms dropped over a foot of snow at a time! It wasn’t all work, though- we took sleds to all the chores this winter! And sometimes you just have to pull out the snowmobiles to check on wildlife up the canyons! Although snow maintenance kept us busy, this was also an excellent time to work on long projects in the shop.
