Richard and I enjoyed presenting to the very interested Vet School students.
Thanks to Jeremia for taking these photos of both Richard and I!
We put on our first Bud Williams Marketing School and also a 1.5 day Stockmanship School in Winchester, VA. Click here for photos!
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 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!
