Justin Oldfield in truck

Season 2, Episode 14 Out Now!

This episode addresses the almost unprecedented precipitation in California and its effect on a Northern Californian rancher. The effects are in no way localized with extensive flooding, road closures, power outages, mudslides, property damage and loss of lives extending the length of the state. The cause has been a barrage of Atmospheric Rivers battering the state.

We’d been hearing that many area ranchers were experiencing a multitude of issues in regard to recent weather. We thought we’d reach out to someone local and attempt to get a feel of the magnitude of the effects. We didn’t have to go far. Justin Oldfield’s ranch is 20 minutes south of Sacramento and less than 2 miles off of highway 99. Daehling Ranch was dealing with a multitude of issues.
