The question came up in one of my email lists of where to find archived USDA livestock reports, and I did a little searching to find the answer. Then I thought our readers here might also be interested.
Here’s how to find them! First, find the URL of the auction or the prices you want from this page:
This will lead you to a page with a URL similar to this one for the Missouri Weighed Avg page:
You will need to note down the last part of this URL. In this case, we will use the part: jc_ls795
Now, navigate to this page:
Mom, Richard, and I have been talking about writing the book about Mom and Dad’s life for a long time now. Finally, we realized that, if we don’t start on it and really put some focus into it, it just won’t happen. Therefore, we have decided to not teach ANY schools in 2019 (except the 3 day Marketing and Stockmanship School in February just before the 2019 Bud Summit) so we can focus on collecting the information and writing the book.
So, if you have been putting off attending a school thinking, “I’ll just get the next one,” you might consider attending one of these four schools, or you will need to wait until 2020.
Here is the information about our remaining schools:
Watch for notice that the book is ready to order!
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.
Here’s Mom’s statement about it: stockmanship.com
Wishing you and yours a very happy Spring!
Jesse Bussard has written a great article about Low Stress Stockmanship on the Sieben Livestock Company Ranch owned by Whit Hibbard, of the Stockmanship Journal fame, and his family.

We had a great group for our first school in Southern California.
This article was published May 30, 2016 in Drovers, and somehow we missed promoting it on our web page at the time. I’m going with “better late than never” and posting it now! These misconceptions are things we cover in our schools and some are really important differences between Proper Stockmanship and some other stockmanship “methods” or thoughts.

We had another excellent school before the 2018 Bud Summit (which was also great!). Thanks to Eunice Williams (Mom!) for her great assistance with the school and to all the participants. As always, this was “the best school ever!”
