Great photos - interesting your bull is out at the same time of the calendar year as ours but at polar opposite seasons - your calves will be late summer there?

Ouch, no need to rub it in. Your Nov 11 pictures look like September 1st in this neck of the woods. We have 7" of snow here since the weekend and sub -20C. Another winter is upon us in the Great White North.No

Travis, my first thought seeing your pics was "through the woods to grandma`s house" ...same treat for a cow heading to fescue this time a year...
tell Shirley the bread lasted me a whole two days; Travis is truly blessed; not only is Shirley beautiful/beautiful person; JohnN and I can attest she can cook cheers I think Travis`s cows are fine example of how easily it is to build a good functional cowherd outside the registered mainstream...

Not rubbing it in Grassfarmer, Just got lucky with enough rain this year to be able to save the grass for now. good luck with the snow this year!

Thanks Mike for the kind words, I know i am blessed. Shirley said she's glad you enjoyed the bread.

three more bulls to Arkansas yesterday; seven this year; all sold via my version of the old sausage theory...

the old version...

"...so here's what the sausage game is: You win yourself a market with a nice all-meat sausage, the best sausage you can make. People eat that sausage and they say 'mmm-hmmm!' So now you've established the product, right? Now you can afford to start slipping in a little sawdust. Add the sawdust by small enough increments and no one'll even notice. People will still say 'mmm-hmmm!', because people are creatures of habit. Of course, five or six increments down the road, you'll end up with a product that bears little or no resemblance to what you started with, but you'll get away with it, for a while, at least. Your market share will hold, your profit margin will increase, and everybody will think you're smart." - Leonard Caust - -

my version...
you create a predictable product of known quality to yourself but without the usual trappings of "artificial proof" traditionally promoted...you price it low enough to get the consumer to try it; they like it, they see the value is greater than the price, and you slip the price up a little; but never too much; And you must renew the product; not easy....you won`t win the world; but you`ll win enough...

Lady at church asked about farm things. Told her that one daily chore was to move the poliwire. Discussion ensued. Got to rain or shine, hot or cold, feel good or feel bad: got to move the wire. Final comment: "Well, if you would not be so stingy and let them graze the whole pasture then you would not have to do that." OK, she has dogs. Wonder if when she gets home from Walmart if she pours the whole 25 pound bag of dog food into the dogs bowl?

Slightly mature fescue being used to grow out bulls. Not fast but cheap. And clovers mixed in for good measure. Long yearlings and 2 YOs. FS about 5 so seedheads are tall.

I cannot believe some of what I have read of his stuff and surely do not want to pay to hear it in person. Much like starving a profit out of cows, quality plant species magically appear in old long term crop fields, ... I just got behind because my brother had a wood splitter in this pasture and he did not want any "bull adjustments" to his equipment.

The secret to Greg Judy's success is his customers buys the hay he winter's their cows on. It is amazing what tons of hay fed per acre can do for poor run out farm ground.
