of a local attraction, the car corrals. We currently have two corrals, each built
with approximately 100 old cars of all kinds (no imports), serve as a sturdy
and effective means for working buffalo. While we have had some try to escape,
so far it is car corral 2, buffalo 0.

with the buffalo we raise winter wheat, corn, sunflowers
(oil type) and hay, all being non-irrigated. We also raise
beef, the other red meat.
