Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience.

Online Schools

Due to covid-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 covid permits.

We will offer online courses on Livestock Marketing and Proper Stockmanship. We will post video lessons on password-protected web pages the class attendees can watch at 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.

Proper Stockmanship Course

Using lecture, questions/answers, and videos, we will cover—

  • Research benefits
  • Pressure and release
  • How we communicate with our livestock
  • Instincts of humans and livestock
  • Predator/Prey relationship
  • Positioning and movement
  • Training the herd
  • At the gate and working in the corral
  • Sorting, weaning, receiving, and loading
  • Our attitude

Livestock Marketing Course

Using lecture, questions/answers, current market data, and actual math calculations, we will cover—

  • Know and Understand Yourself
  • The only price that matters (hint, there won’t be any crystal ball involved)
  • Know your resources (money, feed, livestock, and time) and how to manage them
  • Sell/Buy compared to Buy/Sell
  • Find Relationships and determine what to sell and what to buy
  • Marketing for the Cow/Calf Producer
  • Determine the Value of Breeding Stock
  • Make a profit and stay in business!
