This new 400 page book, completed in 2019, has many more elements of stockmanship for the range rider over the 2004-150 page book. The 2004 book has undergone substantial expansion to include a great many more details and helpful diagrams about working stock in facilities, sorting, weaning, handling pairs, dealing with sensitive or aggressive stock, loading and dealing with handling issues common to all producers. It also includes sections on bison and grazing and soils that are remarkable accounts that we can use to enhance, protect or restore our grazing lands. This book, while an exhaustive manual for range riders, has very useful information for all operations including feedlots, dairies and smaller operations.

Whit Hibbard a Montana Rancher who also teaches stockmanship. He has collected a lot of good information and put it on his stockmanship journal website. I suggest visiting the site and if you get only one item get his interview with Bud and Eunice Williams (we call it the Bud Bible). Its available for a small cost. The URL for the site is:http://www.stockmanshipjournal.com

Susan and I are also producing DVD's that will cover: getting stock working for you, driving cattle, sorting, weaning, working stock in facilities and placing cattle for grazing lands management. Look soon for a greatly expanded book and DVD's that visualize what is written.
