BLM Extends Comment Period on Proposed Rule

According to the Public Lands Council – of which the American Sheep Industry Association is a member – the Bureau of Land Management has extended the comment period on its proposed rule that would undermine multiple use of public lands across the West.

This rule would set the stage for reduction or elimination of grazing and other multiple uses across BLM lands – and would undermine long-term efforts to improve landscape health. Stakeholders now have until July 5 to submit comments.

It’s October – Let’s Cast-Off Chemo!

All year round our Pink Project helps raise funds for cancer research through the S.D. Ireland Cancer Research Fund.  Now that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we want to say a big THANK YOU to the many knitters and crocheters who have purchased Pink Project sets and accessories.  Together, since 2006, we have sent over $246,000 to the S. D. Ireland Cancer Research Lab at the University of Vermont, getting closer every day to replacing chemotherapy with highly targeted, gentle, and effective immunotherapy.

Summer Mornings on Solace Farm

Just thought I would share my morning …

…I am sitting in the warmth of the morning sun on my porch swing watching the dew drops glisten like stars on the vibrant green grass. A gentle breeze causes the verdant stalks to tremble every now and then as though shimmering in the ecstasy of birdsong that fills the air. It is these quiet moments that make the days glide by in spite of the hours of weeding and haying.

Life is good.
