Because neither Richard or I like to mow our lawn, and because we have all these handy “automatic” lawnmowers, we do what we call “weed and feed” with our cattle.
Today I’m using our newly (exactly a week ago) weaned calves to do the work for me. I set up polywire around my flowers and shrubs in all sorts of jigs and jogs to get the most of our grazing. It was so nice to go out in the pasture, drive the calves up (got a nice buck-out along the way!), and put them into this maze to do my lawn-mowing for me!
We had another successful Livestock Marketing and Proper Stockmanship School before the Annual Bud Summit.

Best wishes for a wonderful year to you and yours!
It’s almost here!
May your 2017 be Happy and Healthy!
I ain’t much good at prayin’,
And you may not know me Lord,
I ain’t much seen in churches
Where they preach Thy Holy Word,
But You may have observed me
Out here on the lonely plains,
A-lookin’ after cattle, feelin’
Thankful when it rains.
Merry Christmas and a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year to you and yours!
Richard and I enjoyed 3 days on the beach after speaking at the HMI Gathering. These three seagulls were just too tempting; Richard had to drive them some! [Click to view the video in the full blog post.] (more…)
