Camel Ranching is a “Dirty Job”

I’m a fan of the TV show “Dirty Jobs,” and the host, Mike Rowe.  Last winter I spoke at the annual conference for the Western Fair Association.  I met a lot of people at that conference, and heard a lot of great stories. But the absolute coolest story I heard was from Nancy Riegler.  She and her husband Gil raise camels at the Oasis Camel Dairy in San Diego County, and when I met her she had just heard that Dirty Jobs was going to be visiting their ranch to film an upcoming show.

Nancy wrote about the shooting on her blog, and tonight the episode aired. It was awesome to see someone I had met on one of my favorite shows. In the clip below, you can learn about a traditional cure for dysentary. Note, that I don’t recommend watching this immediately after eating.

I think at some point in my life, I might need to switch careers to some sort of dirty job.
