Every School is the “Best School!”

One thing Richard and I have noticed is that, after every stockmanship/marketing school, we turn to each other and say, “that was the BEST school ever!” I told Mom this, and she said she and Dad always said the same thing too! It’s such a wonderful thing for Richard and I to be able to travel around and put on these schools which attract the BEST of the BEST in agriculture! Sharing information with these forward-thinking people is extremely satisfying for us, and hopefully for them too.

Special thanks to TomKat Ranch for bringing us in to hold a one day stockmanship school here today near Pescadero, CA.

Heading West

Our snowstorm yesterday and continuing today isn’t the reason we are heading to warmer country, but it’s a nice perk!

We are heading to the Santa Cruz, California area for a two day stockmanship school on May 9-10 and then will go north to Woodburn, Oregon for a one day introduction class! For more information about the Oregon school, contact Britt at everbearingfarms@hotmail.com or 541-231-5171.

Scared of the Corral?

We are watering the cattle out of the drinker in the barn lot (where the corral is located). One of the cows was so relaxed about the corral that she “placed” her 24-hour-old calf inside the Bud Box while she went out to graze.

But, really, this isn’t all that remarkable in any way. The only reason livestock appear “afraid” of the corral (or gate or feeder or anything similar) is that we are pressuring them incorrectly. When you apply proper stockmanship, fear isn’t an issue, and the livestock respond in the ways so you can get the job done.

This Valentine’s Day . . .



Of course, like Neil Dennis said at the school we put on near Arcola, SK, this summer, using good stockmanship could lead to the economic downfall of the local florist shop because the fellas don’t need to buy "I’m so sorry I yelled at you" flowers!
