California Ranchers are bouncing back after the drought forced many of them to sell their livestock last winter.  The Lack of rain stopped the grass from growing, and buying enough feed became too costly.  "Look at it out there, there ain't nothing for them to bite, they're wearing their teeth out trying to get at it," rancher Jim Gates said last year.  He was one of two ranchers Capital Public Radio's Amy Quinton visited in 2014.  She recently went back to see how they're doing, and filed this report.
