Jul 12, 2012

But despite all her hard work, Debbie realized that most people don’t know what goes into maintaining a farm. So she created a blog, Life on a Kansas Cattle Ranch, with stories and pictures to show everyday people what cattle ranching is all about. Debbie believes that ranchers and farmers need to be activists, by showing responsibility to the land and helping to save the planet.

With generations invested in the ranch, she’s proud to continue a family legacy modeled by her mother. “She taught us early on that it didn’t matter if you were a guy or a gal,” Debbie says. “Those cows were hungry and they needed taking care of.”
