You hear tell of the populations IQ dropping over time... I may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but if I wanted to talk about cattle, coming here for anecdotes and bickering doesn't cut it.

there was a spell of six or eight months where I could not log on here...
I did not want to start all over with a new identity.
when I finally got back on the posting membership was quite different...

Enjoying the discussion.
when I finally got back on the posting membership was quite different...

Some.

You got close to me this past year when you were down here in TX.

21,000 members and we each may know or recognize a few hundred names. 20,000 of those have probably no longer post. It just happens.

Who was that young high roller from California that had ranches and feedlots? His father was big in NCBA.

Her place is gorgeous.
Pretty cattle, turkeys, deer and those huge live oaks that the limbs go to the ground and back up.
She is an encyclopedia on Hereford.
