Happy President's Day
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
President's Day In lieu of wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day (since although we do care very much about each of you, you are not our valentines) I decided to wish you a Happy President's Day, something I have never done before! The best part about President's Day is that it brings lots of skiers to our area, giving a needed boost to our very slow winter economy. And speaking of a boost, we received about 4 inches of much needed rain this past week. Yahoo! And Wolf Creek Ski Area received lots of new snow.

Allan has been in Oklahoma the last two weeks, checking on cattle and making plans for this year and next. It can be quite the challenge at times, running part of our operation in Colorado and part in Oklahoma, but for now it seems to be our best solution. In spite of the drought he says the cows have done amazingly well and look as good as he could hope. Sometimes the grass that grows in drought conditions is a much higher quality than normal, and higher in protein. We are pleased and the future looks very good.


More Lambs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Baby Lambs I reported last month that we were lambing, and wanted to share the latest pictures of our lamb crop. So far we have 15 happy little newbies jumping and playing in the pasture. These are some hardy little critters, having weathered record low temperatures during January. I guess being a part of new life is one of the best parts of living on a ranch.


Organic, Free Range Chicken
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We now have organic, free range chicken available from our producing partner, Mary's Chicken. While it will be a few more weeks before whole chickens will be available, we have Whole Chickens Cut Up (8 pieces), Boneless Chicken Breasts, Thighs, Drumsticks, and Wings, ready to ship now. We are out of Pastured Whole Chickens, but still have a few packages of Drumsticks, Wings, and Livers left.


Lower Prices on Lamb Chops
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We have lowered the price on Rack of Lamb, Rib Chops, and Loin Chops to $16.99 per pound. All the other lamb cuts will stay pretty much the same. We also lowered the prices on the lamb packages and the whole and half lambs. In today's economy it is pretty rare to see a price decrease, although we are all very happy to see gasoline prices come down lately, and hopefully you will be pleased to see the lamb prices ease off a bit. After seeing record high prices on lamb last year, things have returned to a more reasonable place. Our stock is good and we hope to be able to hold these lower prices for awhile.


February Special
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Valentine Snow Couple For February we suggest you "Just Roast It." Many of you have asked for a special that includes all of our meats, so for this month we are offering a package of beef, lamb, and chicken cuts that do well roasted. Perfect for this colder time of year when lighting the oven makes a lot of sense.

The Just Roast It Special includes a package of Chicken Drumsticks, a Whole Chicken Cut Up (8 pieces), a couple of Lamb Shanks, a Boneless Leg of Lamb, a Rump Roast, a Sirloin Tip Roast, a Chuck Roast, a couple packs of Short Ribs, and 10 pounds of our yummy Ground Beef, a total of 37 pounds, for the crazy low price of $225, a savings of over $45 off the regular price. And again, for many of you, this savings will offset most if not all of your freight.

For the more romantic, we are also offering our amazing Beef Filets for $23.99 per pound, a savings of $4.00 per pound off the regular price of $27.99 per pound. Save some money this Valentine's Day and cook dinner at home, and make it really special with our tender and delicious Beef Filets hot off the grill. That is sure to please even the crankiest valentine!


In Closing ...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We had our largest response ever to our New Year's Special. Each month I try to get creative, but for some reason that one really hit the jackpot. Please let me know if there is a package you would like me to put together and I will do my best to accommodate you. Have a great month, and pray for more rain and/or snow. Especially for Oklahoma. God bless you all.

Lois, Allan, Lisa, & Dusty
