BLOCKCHAIN INTRODUCED AT FEEDING QUALITY FORUM
01/22/2019 02:49 PM

BLACK INK -- SIGN READING
01/15/2019 03:29 PM
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.

01/11/2019 04:02 PM
Depending on your abacus, cattle prices this past year were unsurprising and mostly on par with the previous year. As long as weather and demand hold up, it's hard to argue that prices will be much different in 2019.

PLAN AHEAD WHEN HAULING LIVESTOCK IN BAD WEATHER
01/11/2019 04:02 PM
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?
