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…)
We are getting all packed up to head to California to speak at the HMI 2016 Gathering October 14-16 at Paicines Ranch, CA.
We will also have an exhibit there and will set up our new banner!
Come visit us at our exhibit and hear our talk Sunday afternoon!
We highly recommend reading the Stockmanship Journal to keep up on what’s happening in Stockmanship!
The latest issue is out now. Read about it and buy yours here.
This was our second trip to the Bethany Retreat Center near Exira, IA. It’s a great location for our classes. We’d also like to thank the Practical Farmers of Iowa for their promotional and financial support of our school.
This was our first school with 2.5 days of Stockmanship, and it was great to have more time to discuss this extensive topic.
We had another excellent Nebraska School in Brewster at Uncle Buck’s Lodge. If you’d like to have a great “Western” Bed & Breakfast experience, don’t miss Uncle Buck’s Lodge! The header image for this post is the Loupe River from the deck of the Lodge.
For every school we spend a lot of time collecting prices and building our handout which is based on the most recent prices in the school area. This time we learned that we can subscribe and receive any of the AMS reports (they don’t report on all states or auctions, but there are a lot which are) by email when they are uploaded.
In order to subscribe, visit this page: https://usda.mannlib.cornell.edu/MannUsda/displayAMSPatronSubscriptions.do?reports=0000 and, toward the bottom, click “register now” to get registered. After that, you can select which reports you want to receive.
You can also read more about the school here.
Or, give us a call at 417-327-6500 if you have additional questions.
Richard just had another great driving experience. We returned late Tuesday from our last school in Wyoming, then on Wednesday a neighbor came over and said he had lost a bull and wondered if he was on our place. Then our other neighbor who watches over the place while we are gone said yes, he had seen the bull in one of our pastures near the road.
Our first school in Wyoming was to another great group of ranchers!
