The problem is not the problem; the problem is your attitude about the problem.

Online Schools

Due to c*vid-land and also our just plain getting older, we have decided to expand our training into on-line courses as well as some travel as c*vid permits.

We will offer online courses on Livestock Marketing and Proper Stockmanship. We will post video lessons week by week on password-protected web pages the class attendees can watch on their own time, then we will schedule zoom meetings with the class to discuss the materials and answer questions before we move onto the next lesson.

The fee to attend either course will be $400 for the first person and $200 per additional adult in your family. Your own kids age 18 and under attend free. 

Proper Stockmanship Course

Next Course Starting October 1, 2021 ending about November 12, 2021

Course after that will be January-February 2022

We will post the first videos on October 1 and two videos per week through the last videos on October 29. You will have access to watch all the course videos until November 30 at which time the access will end. If you have a specific need or emergency, please contact us for an extension.
