Cheryl on ranch

Season 2, Episode 15 Out Now!

We initially decided to visit Oak Ridge Angus to pursue an angle in regard to Bull Sales… it’s a fascinating process and not something we’d covered before on this podcast. After some research and my interview with 3rd generation rancher Cheryl LaFranchi, there was a whole lot more to unpack. This episode will be split in two. In the first we’ll learn the history of Oak Ridge Angus, how and why they have over a decade long partnership with the Bear Republic Brewery and about the Range to Table Program where they partner with the Redwood Empire Food Bank to provide beef to Northern Californian’s who are food insecure. Lastly, we’ll talk about their experience with 2019’s Kincade Fire which decimated their ranch.

In 2 weeks we’ll hear about how their 4 Angus bulls did at the Red Bluff Bull and Gelding sale.
