Program Summary: Just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, fifth-generation sheep rancher Bill Jensen guides recalcitrant lambs through a foot bath. A few miles down the road, Bob Giacomini checks out his high-tech milking barn where 480 cows are each milked 3 times a day. Bill and Bob are part of a rich agricultural region of dairy farmers, cattle and sheep ranchers and oyster growers in West Marin County.
