When Matthew Ruland was growing up in Ross, he would wonder why his family performed particular tasks on their ranch.
Commonly, he said, the responses were simple: “Because” and “That’s the way it’s always been done.”

It has really helped me learn a lot of new methods, opinions and ways to operate that I can take home and make things a lot easier on myself.”
