Wintery cattle drive

Written by Submitted

DSC01289The annual cattle drive for Robert and Trudy Simkin of Consort took on a whole new challenge this year as a snow storm blew in on Saturday, April 13 that made for some visibility issues as five riders and others helped move the cow herd numbering approximately 450 to their calving and summer home southwest of Coronation from Consort.  The move is approximately 40 miles and it takes three days.  The Simkin’s have been doing this for 22 or 23 years, said Robert in a telephone interview following the end of the trek on Monday, April 15.
