Hello from Point Blue Lowline Farm of Louisiana

Postby Robin Lewis @ PBF » Wed Jul 06, 2016 6:16 am

We are a fairly new Lowline Black Angus farm and excited to be here. We are still new to this breed and experiences and showing up with lots of questions. Maybe have a few answers too. We are members of ALR and SLABA. We have an small farm and herd on about fifteen acres of land and so far we breed and sale our Lowlines.
We are in the process of DNA testing our herd and looking into AI ing soon for its expansion. We have had the usual fence problems, one still birth and some slow profit time under our belt so far. We have our fields soil tested and our elder herd members are Registered. We feel lucky to be what we are and think we made the right choice for any small rancher when it comes to this breed.
If there are any new ideas out there to finding the right selling spots or prices, what to do when herd members get old, how to tag easier, what may help produce our herds health or anything else fill us in.
We have three Bulls and one heifer up for sale now. Being we are new to this business and ready to build our herds reputation we have been selling our babies for hundreds less than the big boys out there. We hope to change that soon but we hope other small farms like ours think this is the way to go too.

If you make it idiot proof they'll come up with a better idiot.

Selling your cattle for "hundreds less" than the big guys implies that YOU believe they are, in fact, worth less. Are they? If yes, then you are doing the right thing. If they are equal to or better than cattle from the big guys and you have evidence to prove it then you should say so, show the proof and price them accordingly.

Set your standards high, let everyone know what those standards are and stick with the program

This advise applies to everyone regardless of what they are selling. If you are not proud of your product no one else will be either!
