Ranch Woman Raising Cattle Near Bismarck

Posted:

Ranching is no easy feat. 
There are plenty of days filled with long hours and challenging tasks.
Ag Reporter Sarah Gustin introduces you to one woman who isn't letting hard work keep her from pursuing her dream.

Tracy Zeeb doesn't work an average workday.
Her days are filled with feeding hay, pulling twine and getting gates.
(Tracy Zeeb / Rancher) "I love the cows."
That love for cattle turned a part time job into a full time position.
Tracy quit her job to take care of each and every one of these faces.
(Tracy Zeeb / Rancher) "2 years ago I quit my job and went full time out here."
Zeeb now works full time right here at this ranch south of Bismarck.
Turning what was a commercial herd into a purebred operation.
(Tracy Zeeb / Rancher) "I just wanted to get into registered because it fascinated me I guess."
Zeeb now is raising bulls and selling them off the ranch and recently had one take 2nd place in his division at the State Angus Bull test.
While this calving season has been labor intensive--Tracy says the extra work is worth taking this to this.
(Tracy Zeeb / Rancher) "More hands on. A lot with the snowfall that we had, the coldness. have to bring them in and dry them off and put them in a calf dryer." 
Tracy says while the job in town is missed, she loves her new position.
(Tracy Zeeb / Rancher) "I do miss working, but I enjoy the nature and the quite I bond more with the animals. I work a lot with the bulls.

Currently Zeeb says just over 1/2 of their herd is registered. 
She says the goal is to have an entire registered herd.
