IT'S THE PITTS -- COWS AREN'T CUTE
I love cattle. Always have, but it's not the same love I have for the dog or the horse. Cows are not cuddly, if you know what I mean?

HUNTIN' DAYLIGHT -- CHANCES GALORE

PLAN AHEAD WHEN HAULING LIVESTOCK IN BAD WEATHER
Wouldn't it be nice if every livestock show was just a short drive from home? And wouldn't it be even more ideal if we could haul our livestock in 55-degree weather with no humidity, no storms, and dry, clear roads? Unfortunately, there is no "utopia" for hauling livestock to shows, even if you live 20 minutes from the show, you have the possibility of a flat tire or a re-route due to somebody else's unfortunate accident.

BLACK INK -- SIGN READING
The sign reads "Welcome to Grant County," in simple white letters on a small, forest green backdrop. It sits near a creek more than an hour's drive from where I grew up, but every time I see it, I already feel like I'm home. At this landmark, the air begins to smell different and the scenery -- though to the untrained eye not seemingly dissimilar to the miles behind -- is distinctly more familiar.

MANAGE PASTURES CAREFULLY TO MAKE THE MOST OF WINTER GRAZING
Imagine cattle herds grazing tall, nutrient-rich grasses year-round, with no worry of snow cover or dormancy. Although this utopic scenario sounds pretty great, it's just too good to be true here in cow country, U.S.A.

IT'S THE PITTS -- BE NICE
People the world over use their fingers to communicate; mostly in rude ways. Hip teenagers and Italians couldn't communicate if they had to wear mittens or a catcher's glove. The problem is this "finger talk" is not universal the world over.

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- CHASING HISTORY...AGAIN
Hooter hadn't seen Rowdy Finster since a couple of conventions ago.

BLOCKCHAIN INTRODUCED AT FEEDING QUALITY FORUM
The IBM brand isn't often associated with the cattle business. But that may change, thanks to the tech giant's IBM Food Trust and its use of blockchain.
