Here we are just before presenting at the American Forage and Grassland Council conference in Springfield, Missouri.
When we went out to check on the cows after our return we were happy to see that we had two new calves. That’s the great thing about these old cows, they’ve had enough calves you don’t need to worry much about them having problems! In the process of moving them to a new break of grass, we let them water up. This last cow was drinking when we got to looking and saw her calf very actively kicking around! We thought maybe we’d finally found a video which might go “viral” on YouTube!
After driving for four days and visiting some great spots like Mt. Rushmore and Independence Rock, we arrived in Logan, UT to begin the Fred Provenza Short Course at Utah State University. One of the main reasons we wanted to come was to visit with Bruce Maynard of “Stress Free Stockmanship” of Australia who is teaching stockmanship at the Course. We’ve corresponded for some time, and this was a great chance for us to visit as well as learn from Fred and the others here.
On our drive through Wyoming today we spotted two cowboys driving this herd of bulls along the highway against the backdrop of these mountains. What a great world we live in!
Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
