Simplicity is an acquired taste. Mankind, left free, instinctively complicates life.

Comment from a Burlington School Attendee

Richard and Tina,

I was at the two day seminar in Burlington, CO. Just wanted to let you know that I have been using some of the techniques that you showed us, and it seems to be working. I’ve been messing with the 36 head of first calf heifers we received last week, and I believe they would probably fit into the wild category of livestock. After four days of playing with them, I can drive them around with a better than average amount of success. It might be luck but I’ll call it some form of success.

Now I am hooked and am anxious to receive our older cows back off of cornstalks so that I can harass them.

Chris, he was with me at the seminar, and I worked on some of his feedlot cattle. This pen would fit into the “don’t sneeze wrong” cattle. They had already blown out the backside of the pen the week before we went to your seminar. Anyway, he messed with them a little on Sunday when we got back, and then we moved them out to the working facility to be reimplanted. We were successful without tearing down any fences. Again, might be beginners luck, but looked good to us.

Today I helped a neighbor load out two pots of 750 pound calves and had excellent results. If it were not for the truckers “helping”, it would have went a lot smoother. It was neat, in a educational way, to watch the truckers’ movement and position and see what a negative effect they had on the calves.

Thank you for your time and help, I can see this having nothing but a positive result on our livestock and the people who are forced to work with me.

Thank you,

Robert
