Ben's view of his prairie “office” from “behind the desk”.

Circle Pi Ranch is owned by Ben Yates. He grew up in Campbell California when Silicon Valley was mostly orchards and dinosaurs. Some say it was a mosquito bite at a young age that infected him with his hard work ethic and love for ranching. As a fearless entrepreneur he founded a successful electronics manufacturing company in California and now enjoys splitting his time counter-balancing his fast-paced “high-tech business life” with the more rewarding “ranch life” in Idaho .

Troy Olson and his family, native Idahoans, are ranch managers and operational advisors to Ben. They are Ben's Idaho family and what keeps the ranch running smoothly. 

Rowdy Yates with his trusty side-kick “Zack” and friends save the day by driving cattle back from the edge of a dangerous cliff.
