When they showed the cattle herders what did they mean that the land would soon be gone? Didn't get that part.

On the show, aging owner Hans Lawaetz* said that the land was too expensive for somebody else to buy and continue the business. Possibly not explained on the show: The land has been in Hans Lawaetz's family for generations, which is how he owns it now. Not explained on the show: Presumably his heirs are not interested in continuing the business, and for a future buyer the revenue from cattle ranching would not justify the purchase price of the land.

* Pronounced "luh VETS", although Zimmern pronounced it "LAY witz"

In the Western USA bull balls are common fare. As a vegetarian they only disgust me as much as any other meat. Happy with the pile of local tubers at Harveys. Missed the show. Were there any weird local veggies?
