ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A world without coffee shops and crowds isn’t new for the Women in Ranching group, a Western Landowners Alliance initiative that connects rural ranchers.
The women usually host regional meetups, but their relationships via technology have taken on new life in light of COVID-19.
The group started a weekly Zoom call to check in with each other. The women also email updates and photos of life on their land.
Kayla Deresin manages Forked Lightning Ranch between Santa Fe and Las Vegas, New Mexico. She is part of the regional group that met at Troustalker Ranch in Chama in September.
