About the author

John Marble grew up on a terribly conventional ranch with a large family where each kid had their own tractor. Surviving that, he now owns a small grazing and marketing operation that focuses on producing value through managed grazing. He oversees a diverse ranching operation, renting and owning cattle and grasslands while managing timber, wildlife habitat and human relationships. His multi-species approach includes meat goats, pointing dogs and barn cats. He has a life-long interest in ecology, trying to understand how plants, animals, soils and humans fit together. John spends his late-night hours working on fiction, writing about worlds much less strange than this one.

    Those are some great looking Dexter cows to be at a sale barn. I wish we had that here in Iowa.

      Thanks Jim, but I didn’t produce them, I just stumbled upon them. They are full-mouth cows, so pretty young, and re-bred to a nice medium frame black bull. I plan to have them preg tested. So, they are available, and there is a highway that runs all the way to Iowa.

      Drop me a line.
