Ranchers Are Invited to Submit the Reasons They Love Their Properties and the Ranching Lifestyle to Lem Lewis' Popular Twitter Series

Yes, it’s tempting to keep all these wonderful reasons to ourselves. But that would violate the ranching credo: We are but stewards of the bounty that God created for everyone to enjoy.
— Lem Lewis
BLANCO, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2016 / -- Ranchers are a special breed of people, who often develop a passionate affection for their properties and the ranching lifestyle. Once smitten, many ranchers become unabashed evangelists for the ranching way of life.

Lem Lewis, a veteran ranch broker, knows firsthand what people mean when they describe ranching as “infectious.” A fourth-generation Texas rancher, Lem considers helping people buy and sell ranches a calling.

“It’s something I am meant to do; my higher purpose in life,” he says.

In an effort to explain to non-ranchers what they’re missing, Lem recently created a series of Twitter graphics and posts, titled “99 Reasons We Love Ranching – What’s Yours?” The posts, which run daily on his Twitter account at, showcase just some of the many reasons that Lem, himself, loves ranching, as well as reasons that his loyal clients have shared with him over the years.

“Yes, it’s tempting to keep all these wonderful reasons to ourselves,” Lem admits. “But that would violate the ranching credo: We are but stewards of the bounty that God created for everyone to enjoy.”

In addition to posting his own list of 99 Reasons, Lem is inviting the nationwide ranching community to contribute their own special reasons by emailing or by posting to his Twitter account, @therancherbroker. Lem will include the best responses he receives in future “Reasons We Love Ranching” lists.

Among the 99 reasons in Lem’s first series are these ten:

1. Never-ending sky
2. Dogs without leashes
3. Barbecue
4. Foals
5. Prime beef
6. Fiery sunsets
7. Fresh milk dispensers (cows)
8. Tire swings
9. Pickup trucks
10. Kids. Kids. Kids.
