My name is Kaitlyn Marie McElderry, a student at Oregon State University. I spent my first two years as an on campus Biology major with an option of Pre-Veterinary medicine. My goals have developed as a student and life circumstances presented me the opportunity to switch to the College of Agricultural Science, as an online Rangeland Science major.
I currently live on a 320 acre cattle ranch. This cow/calf operation is located in rural Klamath County, with a gorgeous view of the Cascades and Klamath Lake. A typical year includes:
Summer: Hay Season
Fall: Selling Calves
Winter: Delivering and vaccinating calves
Spring: Breeding Season
The objective of this blog is to document my learning experience as a Rangeland Science Ecampus student, and to apply that research to life as a farmer and rancher. With the help and oversight of my instructor, Yvette M. Gibson, the blog will encompass many different approaches to Rangeland Science.
