Both Likely Land & Livestock Episodes Out Now!

In this first episode of our visit to Likely Land & Livestock Company in Modoc County, we speak with fifth generation rancher Myles Flournoy about the ranch’s multigenerational history and about Treasure Island, which is a boneyard of old ranch vehicles some of which fell victim to Myles and his brother Dan’s creative driving. Their uncle Dave who runs the ranch’s auto shop refers to Treasure Island as his parts department.

On Part Two, we start with an April interview with the three Flournoy brothers Billy, Dave and John, all fourth generation ranchers in Likely where they provide a bit of ranch history and illustrate the importance of the ranch cookhouse. We then meet Jessica, the new cookhouse cook and end the episode with a bit of Cowboy Poetry by Sunny Hancock and recited by Billy Flournoy.
