Melfort, Saskatchewan, October 18-21, 2017

This school was the farthest north we have ever taught (53.3 degrees N)! Thanks to the Melfort Royal Canadian Legion Branch for letting us present in their lovely hall. It was great to see the memorabilia of their local service men and women.

We had a chance to drive some calves in a local background yard where the participants were able to see how calves react when they don’t understand what “driving” means. It wasn’t long before they were driving great in and out of their pens. However, this gave the attendees a good view of what their calves might look like when they walk into the pen so they don’t worry they are doing something “not quite right!”

Edinburg, Virginia School, June 7-10, 2017

We had a fun trip to Virginia for a marketing and stockmanship school at J&L Green Farm with Jordan and Laura Green. They are doing excellent work not only on their own farm with pastured poultry, hogs, and beef but also in helping others start their own farms. You can read more about their work helping other farmers on their Facebook page at FarmBuilderJordan

Also, Jordan did a video interview with us covering some basics and also questions about both Livestock Marketing and Proper Stockmanship. Watch it here.
