Now What?

As a 20-year-old driller in the oilfield, it was my good fortune to work for a tool pusher, Junior, who taught me many valuable lessons that have since shaped my approach to a variety of issues that have come my way in the world of agriculture.  One in particular has stuck with me.  During a mechanical breakdown on the drilling rig during my shift, I went down to tell Junior what had happened and the problem it had created.  He was eating his lunch at the time and without looking up or at me, he simply replied, “Now what?” As […]

From Spring to Summer

Our last calf of the season was born last week, which can only mean that spring is quickly turning into summer.  After winter brought very little snow and March and April even less rain, we’ve been fortunate to get some good moisture over the last three weeks–the grass has taken off just in time for the cows and calves to be turned out to pasture before breeding season starts. Below are some pictures of our herd.  The green grass in the background is an answer to prayers. We hope that your calving seasons were smooth, your calves are growing well, […]

Couldn’t Have Said It Better Myself

Couldn’t Have Said It Better Myself… For those of you that don’t know, it was my privilege to coach an exceptional group of young men during the mid and late 1990’s.  Some of them are now involved in production agriculture as farmers and ranchers.  One of them, a particular favorite of mine for various reasons, recently made a comment to me that not only left me smiling, but was very sensible and thought provoking.  He said, “You know, Rick, I have yet to have a cattle buyer ask me what the EPD’s are on my calves.” I couldn’t help but […]
