Photos courtesy Plumas-Sierra CattleWomen Where's the beef?. That depends -- it could be in pastures, on the dinner table or making its way through someone's digestive tract. But, if you ask the Plumas-Sierra CattleWomen, beef education is where it's at and that's the message they shared with 144 elementary school students during field trips to the Goss Ranch (Pitchfork Cattle Co.) in Vinton on June 2 and 3. Children from C. Roy Carmichael, Loyalton and Long Valley Charter School learned about raising sheep, branding, chickens and their eggs, calves and products and byproducts from cows during the ranching adventure. "The Plumas-Sierra CattleWomen know how important it is to educate our local youth about the significant role agriculture and the beef industry plays in our lives," said Nancy Thompson, PSCW Ag in the Classroom co-chairperson. The Goss family has hosted the field trips for several decades to help kids understand where their food comes from. "It's something we've been doing for 40 years," said Dave Goss. "We enjoy doing it and it's our donation to the community." The students also went on a hay wagon ride while learning about the ranch's history, which includes a barn built in 1870, added Goss. PSCW is a group of women dedicated to the preservation of ranching, beef promotion and agricultural knowledge in the Sierra Nevada. In 1966, 44 ranchers' wives formed the local chapter that is now 100 members strong. Originally called the CowBelles, members changed their name to Plumas-Sierra CattleWomen in 1988, according to the organization's website. Currently, PSCW works with all grade levels, partners with Future Farmers of America, organizes fundraisers, offers scholarships and hosts events throughout the year. Prior to the ranch excursion, the.CattleWomen visited C. Roy Carmichael with a presentation on the water cycle as part of Earth Day celebrations and drought awareness efforts.
