Cattle ranching in the USA - with Dylan Winter
Beef farming on a grand scale! Another great DVD by the popular writer and presenter, Dylan Winter, Rocky Mountain Cowboys follows the working year on the 250,000 acre Pitchfork Ranch in Wyoming, one of the most beautiful parts of the United States (Marlborough country).
The programme shows the full range of cattle ranching activities, including roping, bronc-busting, droving and working with horses, cattle, mules and Blue Heeler cattle dogs.
Dylan's interviews with the cowboys and their wives offer an insight into the lives of these hardy people, and he outlines the history of the Pitchfork Ranch from pioneer days to the current relationships with environmentalists.
The film also includes dramatic shots of some of the best, and worst, rodeo riders in the USA, and of the beef lots of Colorado where cattle are kept in fattening units of 100,000 head or more.

In his usual style, Dylan Winter shows how he adapted to the Spartan life of a mountain cowboy, and much of the programme is set against the splendour of the flora and scenery of the Wyoming high country.
Dylan Winter records the working cowboys as they summer pasture their cattle at 8,000 feet, where the men live in log cabins - miles from the nearest power plug. Dylan Winter is the presenter and producer of the very popular Sheep Station NZ
