Florida Ranching – Yesterday and Today

A look at the origins and history of the oldest cattle industry in the United States through the eyes of a 7th generation Floridian, John Skipper. Hear why things are done a bit differently in the Sunshine State from a native whose family has ranched for almost 200 years in the area.

For rancher, artist, and third-generation Floridian, Sean Sexton, the Florida landscape and history are interwoven with his art.
