Last week was very busy for us! We sold our feeder cattle on Monday. Before they were hauled to the Madison Livestock Auction, I took some video.

My dad also came visit & watch the sale. We had a great time together. He was a trooper and got up at 3 AM to drive to South Dakota. Yuck! But, well worth the family time. You’ll see him in the video! 

  •  These are just a few of the cattle raised in the United States each year. There are about 30 million beef cows & 700,000 ranch families (like us) who raise beef!
  • Beef is a primary source of high-quality protein, iron and zinc. A lean, 3-oz serving of beef contains less than 200 calories while also providing over 20 g of protein (1).

I hope you enjoyed the video. It is a light-hearted tribute to all the work & time spent with these calves since last April when they were born. Seeing them with their winter hair & weighing more than 800 pounds is very exciting.

PLUS, anytime there is Eric Church + cattle…I’m usually having fun! I had a blast making it!

Hey, I’m Sierra Shea! I am so glad you are here. 

Where do I start with writing to introduce this blog? At the beginning, I suppose: I’ve been writing on various platforms online since 2013. I started blogging shortly after moving to South Dakota.

I am a mother and a maker at heart. I’m so grateful to be married to John and mother of three: Joslyn, J.D. and Jesse.

I am a self-taught decorator and designer. I am a brand new shepherdess and a Spiritual Director.

I love living in South Dakota, even though the winters & the wind can be a near-daily struggle.

Blogging is a grounding force in my life and it helps get me out of my head, unstuck and moving in the directions I always hoped I’d be going!
