Yesterday Richard and I found an excellent example of just what Bud Williams Livestock Marketing is. My daughter moved to a house which doesn’t have wood heat, and she still had some great oak, seasoned, split firewood left from last winter. She tried selling it at her garage sale with no luck. Then she told a friend who needed firewood that, if he would help her move on Saturday, he could have it free.
First he said he would, and then he changed his mind and decided he would go fishing instead.
We bought some more older, bred cows at the Springfield auction today. We stayed understocked through the summer not certain how the drought would develop. We have lots of feed now (even with the drought) and decided to buy some more cheaper, older, bred cows for spring calving. We wound up with a nice stock trailer full of med aged cows and one nice Brangus heifer we just couldn’t resist (and she was cheap!).
Using Bud Williams Marketing, we buy the underpriced and sell the overpriced. It’s about time to sell the calves we’ve had all summer and just keep these older girls through the winter. Keep your eyes open for some good buys, and keep your plans open for using different ages or classes of livestock to make your profit!
We learned a lot at a Bud Williams Marketing support group meeting at Jack and Lori Martin’s near Independence, Kansas
Bud also attended and shared lots of great advice and stories.

Garland, Tina, and I attended the Bud Williams Marketing Follow-up School in Independence, Kansas this weekend and picked up many great, new points on both marketing and stockmanship.

Richard and I attended the excellent Bud Williams Marketing and Stockmanship school November 6-8. Every time we visit the master we learn many new things.
Jim Lindsay of Low Stress Stockhandling in Australia, Jack Martin of Bar M Bar Ranch, and Richard discuss stockmanship at the school.
We have a nice group of sale barn calves started.
