Female ranchers have found the same independence and adventure that first lured their male antecedents, but they are also forging a new path. Women are leading the trend of sustainable ranching and raising grass-fed breeds of cattle in humane, ecological ways.
I have watched several documentary films about sustainable modern ranching, and the lead characters appearing in these films have often been women.
The world and humanity have been moving in a constant cycle. The popularity of farming has been on the rise in recent years, as more and more people reverse the previous trend of moving to the large cities seeking employment.
Many people these days are moving out of the cities searching for an independent and sustainable lifestyle closer to nature.
Women are proving themselves to be not only capable but innovative in the farming industry.
While doing my research, I came across this article, which is very personal and well written, describing the life of women ranchers in the USA.
