    Jarrod Gillig is President of Business Operations and Supply Chain - North America Protein at Cargill. In this role, he oversees operations for their beef division, as well as several other protein segments within Cargill’s scope.
    Jarrod grew up on a farm near Odessa, MO, and has been with Cargill in a variety of roles over his tenure. In addition to his “day job," Jarrod and his family also have a small herd of cattle and his children are active in 4H and the National Junior Hereford Association.

    #10 - Charly Cummings, Working ON the Market, Not Just IN It

    Charly Cummings is an auctioneer, cattleman and entrepreneur from Yates Center, Kansas. An LMA World Champion Auctioneer, Charly continues to be a proponent of the auction method of marketing cattle, land and other agricultural products.

    As we continue our discussion of beef cattle marketing, Charly shares his first-hand perspective of how producers can study trends, consult with marketing experts and formulate a plan to best market their cattle. In addition, he shares his belief that producers need to research the issues, consider various viewpoints, communicate and then develop some unity to address marketing challenges and help sustain our farms and ranches into the future.

    If you haven't already, listen to Episodes 3 and 8 as we continue this topic of beef cattle marketing.

    Jeanne and David Clawson are farmers and ranchers. They're leaders. They're former 4H'ers and raised their three children in the Kansas 4H program in Meade County.

    Join us as we discuss the many values that 4H offers our youth, plus get insight on how to find that balance between "winning at all costs" and "letting the kid sink or swim."

    Good luck to all of you involved in 4H during this busy time of year. We wish you all the best.

    ...now I have to go help the kids clip show steers.

Dialog lost

Great podcast, seems social media and modern culture has lost the skill of dialog. I’m loving these industry specific conversations. The beef industry faces some challenges and it’s refreshing to hear Matt and his guests talk thru these complex issues.
