Cattle rancher Mike Davidson of Big Spring, Texas talked to me about branching out by permitting drilling and fracking on his property.
Davidson says he loves the land and wouldn't have allowed fracking on his family's ranch if he believed it would harm the environment.
Fracking has also been a boon to the economy in a once-struggling region.
(As I noticed when we were talking, Davidson's cattle -- including a new calf -- don't seem bothered at all by the drilling!)
