Cowboy Wisdom

There’s an old saying, that Cowboys live poor and die rich. I am more inclined to think it’s the Cowboy’s definition of wealth that makes him what he is. I don’t reckon you could call Cowboyin’ a career. The pay’s not great, there are no pension plans, no unions, no benefits, and early retirement is sure-as-hell out of the question. So why do they do it? Because they love it! And for some, its just in their blood.

Not sure where I got that quote, but I found it in the drafts of my blog. I googled it and could not find its source, so here’s my kudos to whoever said this very true statement.

Ryan Goodman works in grassroots advocacy with beef cattle farmers and ranchers across the United States. He is a proud alumnus of Oklahoma State University, with studies focusing on cattle reproduction and nutrition. Ryans
