If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend six sharpening my axe.

Pendleton, Oregon School, July 10-13, 2017

We put on our first school in Eastern Oregon this week. It was nice to combine some visits with family along with working with some great students from the west! We have a lot of photos to share!

Many of Tina’s ancestors traveled the Oregon Trail. It was neat to see these wagon tracks near Baker City, Oregon, and know that some of her family probably traveled them!

Special thanks to Tina’s niece, Beth Stafford for some excellent professional shots of us!

Richard, Karl, and Doug visiting in the setting sun where Beth and Karl live near Echo!

Again, thanks to Beth for taking some photos of both of us!

The group shot!

Chris, local extension agent, received the “Cow Head Award” for helping promote “Bud Williams” Livestock Marketing and Proper Stockmanship.

On Thursday morning we visited Brian’s lovely farm to drive these great low-line Angus cattle.
