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.
