We had another excellent school in Saskatchewan this week! The school was a mix of old and new friends all sharing and learning about Livestock Marketing and Proper Stockmanship.
We are finishing up another great school in Pincher Creek, Alberta!
We’ve received a couple of questions on whether we are involved with or endorse a new livestock tub system named BudFlow®. The answer is NO! It has nothing whatsoever to do with Bud Williams, the Bud Box, or the Proper Stockmanship we teach.

Wishing you and yours a very happy Spring!

Richard and I read a great article today about a new (to us) term, “Complexity Bias.” Basically it says that people prefer the more complex answer rather than the more simple answer. We find this in our schools where people try and complicate things when it’s really not necessary. This is a good read no matter what business you are in!
