    Ep 168: Procrastination is Your Enemy

    Ep 168: Procrastination is Your Enemy

    The gloves are off, which is usually what happens between siblings after Mom & Dad are gone if a good estate plan is not in place.  Today we’re gonna take the gloves off and get gritty in a discussion with Attorney Rick Durfee (Durfee Law Group) about estate planning and the family dynamics that can often create conflict. Plus, the danger of relying on a Will as an estate management tool, some of the tools that can be used in good proactive Estate Management, and the dangers of kicking this can down the road. This is not a warm fuzzy show, but if you value the legacy you would like to leave behind… listen in.

    Ep 166: Bird Flu… What If!!

    Ep 166: Bird Flu… What If!!

    It's more about the "unknown" than the "known" when it comes to Avian Influenza (Bird Flu). Dr. Fred Gingrich, American Association of Bovine Practitioners, is my guest today as we discussed the Influenza Type A H5N1 outbreak now being confirmed in Dairy Cattle.  As a beef cattle rancher I have A LOT of questions like... Are beef cows susceptible? What are the symptoms? How is it transferred? Is it fatal?  Then, what it will do to consumer confidence in any products that come from cows... oh and then what about traceability? And then… what IF it shows up in a Beef Cow?  Dr. Gingrich rates this issue at a level 8.5 to 9 on a scale of 10. For the sake of your ranch and for our cattle industry, tune in for today’s show.

    Ep 165: Hey! What’s This About? GPS Tags (701X) & FerAppease

    Ep 165: Hey! What’s This About? GPS Tags (701X) & FerAppease

    Today you get to listen in as I talked with two, totally unrelated, products in our ranching industry that I am considering using on our ranch.  The first is GPS tags in livestock.  Rob Paxson with 701X lays out how GPS tag technology works, how you would use it, who’s using it, who controls the data, and of course the cost. Then we’ll hear about a product aimed to mitigate stress in livestock called FerAppease. Founder and developer Dr. Rodorigo Bacalho explains what it is, how it works, it purpose in a cattle operation, and of course dosage and cost. It’s not a show endorsing the products, but if I have questions about them... I’ll bet you do to.

    Ep 164: Right Way. Right Time. Maximizing the Potential in Your Cull Cattle

    Ep 164: Right Way. Right Time. Maximizing the Potential in Your Cull Cattle

    It’s all in the Title when it comes to Cull Cattle Management… Right Way… Right Time.  Trey Patterson (Padlock Ranch) and Patrick Linnell (CattleFax) join me today as we discuss the details of a guide to Cull Cattle Management called Right Way – Right Time. Our initial discussion starts with looking at practices that lead to financial losses to our overall industry but also erodes consumer confidence. Then beyond being proactive in our physical management of these cull animals, how do we maximize their marketing potential?  Are you leaving money on the table in the management of your cull cows and bulls?

    Ep 163: Status of Using Antibiotics, Implants, & Feed Supplements w Dr. Michael Apley

    Ep 163: Status of Using Antibiotics, Implants, & Feed Supplements w Dr. Michael Apley

    The use of Antibiotics, Implants, and Feed Supplements... honestly it feels like the start of an awkward conversation. However, Dr. Michael Apley (KSU) unpacks these topics as we not only talk through the history of Antibiotics in our food animals, but also their purpose in today’s cattle industry… from both an animal efficiency point of view but also from an animal welfare perspective. Then we'll have a discussion on Implants being used and the narratives in our industry by both producers and consumers that tend create division.  Then we'll get into the uses and value of using Ionophores and Beta Agonists in our livestock feed.

As a rancher who recently started selling program calves to 44 Farms for the Walmart beef supply chain. I found the two part series informative, relevant, and helpful. I appreciate the weather report and the snipbit of other information from the producer in every episode. If you want to know the latest and greatest in ranching, listen to this podcast.
