Description

This video showcases a typical day on the Switzer ranch where the entire family is involved in ranching operations.

The Sandhills prairie was long ago designated as a rangeland. That is, it was determined that its best agricultural use was for grazing cattle on the region’s abundant native grasses and other plants. There are more than 670 native species of vascular plants in the Nebraska Sandhills.
