Speaking at Eco-Farm Conference

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014 at 7:29 pm by Tina

We presented part of a full day preconference session at the 34th Annual Eco-Farm conference along with Whit Hibbard of the Stockmanship Journal and Kent Reeves of The Whole Picture Consulting, LLC. We also presented part of a break-out session during the main conference with Whit, Kent and Temple Grandin. This conference is at the Asilomar resort in Pacific Grove, CA, so we were able to enjoy the ocean as well as the great opportunity to share the word about stockmanship.


Richard, Tina, Whit Hibbard, Temple Grandin, and Kent Reeves.

Field Day near Vinita, Oklahoma

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013 at 9:48 pm by Tina

Richard and I want to thank Wally Olson for organizing a great field day at his ranch outside of Vinita, Oklahoma today.


First Richard worked these heifers back and forth to teach them to take pressure and know that release was coming.


Then he drove them into another pen . . .


. . . and demonstrated sorting.


After lunch the attendees did some sorting of their own!


Here’s the group shot!
