The Long, Slow Decline of the U.S. Sheep Industry http://kvnf.org/post/long-slow-decline-us-sheep-industry <p>Over the last 20 years, the number of sheep in this country has been cut in half. In fact, the number has been declining since the late 1940s, when the American sheep industry hit its peak. Today, the domestic sheep herd is one-tenth the size it was during World War II.</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The decline is the result of economic and cultural factors coming together. And it has left ranchers to wonder, &ldquo;When are we going to hit the bottom?&rdquo;</span></p><p></p> Tue, 15 Oct 2013 16:11:38 +0000 Luke Runyon 17251 at http://kvnf.org The Long, Slow Decline of the U.S. Sheep Industry Prison Dairy Serves Up Buffalo Milk http://kvnf.org/post/prison-dairy-serves-buffalo-milk <p>Past the razor-wire fences, beyond huge metal gates, behind thick walls, you’ll find one of the most unique dairies in the country.&nbsp;</p><p> Wed, 04 Sep 2013 17:06:28 +0000 Luke Runyon 15476 at http://kvnf.org Prison Dairy Serves Up Buffalo Milk KVNF Local Newscast Wednesday, September 4, 2013 http://kvnf.org/post/kvnf-local-newscast-wednesday-september-4-2013 <p></p><ul><li>Grand Valley Water Officials Say State Should Import Water to Meet Demand</li><li>Delta County Commissioners Discuss Efforts to Protect Sage Grouse</li><li>Mountain Village's Green Gondola Project to Install 10 New Solar Panels</li><li>More Colorado Marijuana on Black Market Than Ever Before</li><li>Prison Dairy Serves Up Buffalo Milk</li></ul> Wed, 04 Sep 2013 14:19:17 +0000 Travis Bubenik 15467 at http://kvnf.org Farmers look to do more with less water http://kvnf.org/post/farmers-look-do-more-less-water <p>The future of agriculture across the Great Plains hinges on water.
