I'm certainly not bashing another industry. Instead, I see pork doing that to us by price comparing our porterhouse to theirs to convince consumers that pork should be at the center of the plate....

I've been told the proposed cost was $2,277,000.

Thanks for the update on the meeting. I really appreciated your comments, and I think your blog was a wake up call for many. Thanks for all you do.

Sounds like you had yourself a good business! I bet the ladies liked your big muscles from throwing all those square bales! :)

Wednesday, July 3, 2013 - 11:50

This is so so true! I always say I learned the value of hard work from scooping manure out of the barn by hand and throwing square bales. A hard work ethic from ranch work certainly extends to...

Agreed! It sure would be nice to spread some of this moisture around!

Wednesday, July 3, 2013 - 11:47

Great blog post! Thanks for sharing! We've had friends from town help throw square bales before, too, and it's always fun to see them get a "real" workout.

Wednesday, July 3, 2013 - 11:46

Such great memories made while baling hay with family! Thanks for sharing this!

Wednesday, July 3, 2013 - 11:45

Agreed! I love it! It's truly the scent of summer!

As I stated, we use them to take to the calving barn and put in individual stalls during calving season. It's pretty simple to throw a square bale on the front and back of the four-wheeler and get...

Perhaps my sense of humor was missed in my typed words. I'm not really complaining...just musing about the ups and downs of farm life more than anything. Saying I need an office job because I...

I'm so glad this post resonated with others, as well. (It's a good feeling to know I'm not the only one!) Flattered, as always, when so many chime in on personal topics like this one. Thank you....

Enjoying the comments on this subject! Keep 'em coming!

Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 13:10

Boy, am I enjoying reading the comments today! It's so reassuring to know I'm not the only one! I was hesitant to write this one because who wants to admit they have blunders in the cattle...

That's great, Katlyn! Thanks for what you do to promote agriculture in your community!

Great conversation, everyone. I think that we shouldn't rely on celebrities to be our spokespersons, but we should celebrate the ones who do great things for our industry.

Have you all...

Thanks, everyone for the kind comments. I appreciate you stopping by the blog.

We sent ours in and filled it out front to back. If I had known that I was only required to list acres, that's all I would have done. Since I don't have the forms anymore, I'm not sure on that one...

I agree that being able to work alongside your partner on the ranch and in marriage has its ups and downs, but the ride is sure sweet! The journey is truly the reward.

Thursday, April 11, 2013 - 12:11

So glad you found the blog. I often write about the nutritional claims made by the mainstream media and try to offer the other side. Enjoy beef!

Thursday, April 11, 2013 - 11:13

I think the concerns are more about the body builders who supplement with carnitine and overdo it. If you're eating a whole, natural food like beef, you're probably okay.

Thursday, April 11, 2013 - 10:13

Thanks for the reports. Hope everyone is doing okay in the storm. We are sure getting a lot of calves in this mess. I keep telling myself, "I love the moisture. I love the moisture. I love the...

I can't thank you all enough for adding your advice and personal stories to this blog post. From the newly weds to those who have been married 30+ years, you have all added some great tidbits for...

This could very well be true, but I still believe that Gosling has a huge influence as one of Hollywood's leading men, and whether he's ignorant or not, he's making these inflammatory statements...

Very well said, Mary Ann. Thanks for sharing your personal story. I agree that the procedure is comparative to a dentist or doctor visit -- not our favorite thing to do, but beneficial to our...

Thank you for your opinions. I tend to disagree that we need to bash one sector of the beef industry to promote another. The great thing about the beef business is that we offer many choices to...
