At the wheel of his pickup truck, driving the perimeter of the Pawnee Springs Ranch, Ranch Manager Steve Boeshart shared his passion for producing quality Angus cattle.
“Ranching is a lifestyle. It’s not a job—it’s a way of life,” Boeshart said. “And it is a lot of fun.” When you raise the exceptional cattle that come from North Platte, NE, everything on the ranch must be considered.
“We run and maintain everything ourselves to make it all more usable and cattle-friendly, which seems to be our second-biggest challenge,” Boeshart points out. “Mother Nature is our first. Trying to figure her out is always interesting.”
Boeshart, his family and everyone involved in the Pawnee Springs operations are always trying to build a better herd by considering everything from feed, to weaning, to genetics. It is a lot of work, but one Boeshart enjoys in every aspect, “It’s getting up in the morning and doing what we do. I enjoy it all.”
