Hat-Cam for Another Perspective

In order to try and better capture the perspective of the person actually working the livestock, we bought a GoPro hat-cam and have been playing with the past few days. Here’s a short clip of Richard working a group of 4 heifers needing some training to take pressure and learn how to start, stop and turn.

Another Library Closed

Clyde Leland “Bud” Williams born June 21, 1932;
passed on November 25, 2012.

I think Wally Olson said it best in an email letting folks know
when he said “another library closed.”

Here’s Mom and Dad at his last speaking event,
the “Bud Summit” in Coffeyville, KS in July

There won’t be a funeral or memorial service. For those of you who would like to do something in honor of Dad’s life’s work, use good stockmanship and share it with everyone you come across. That’s the best legacy anyone could ask for.

Ag Tour Stopped on the Farm

Several months ago Don Lucietta, assistant to Representative Roy Blunt, asked us if they could bring the Representative and an ag tour group to see our switchgrass field in August? We said sure, why not? Well, we didn’t hear much about it after that, though they did ask for some promotional information and photos about us a month or so ago for the printed packet of materials they handed out to the group.

Then, this morning things started happening! KOLR 10 TV station called and asked if they could come out earlier and interview us.

Here’s the link to their finished report which appeared on TV tonight!

And here’s the link to the Springfield News-Leader articles in the August 12 issue. We were front page, above the fold in the actual paper!

Richard was interviewed about our switchgrass field, our cattle business, and our low-stress livestock handling!
