The Gift of the Grass

Round Rock Ranching is a family-run cow-calf and yearling cattle ranch located in the Vermillion area. The McGrath family is dedicated to improving their local environment, to their benefit, the benefit of the community at large, and the benefit of future generations. The McGraths believe that they have a responsibility to engage the local and the global community and that they have a responsibility to work with the public to provide educational opportunities.

“I don’t know when or even how the grass became a part of me. There was no specific day that it happened, cows and life and everything else seem to revolve around grass at our place. People don’t notice grass like they do a tree or a mountain, but it is a visceral part of me. Grass is part of my guts.”
