Cattlemen’s College: Web Roundup
Earlier this week I shared a few thoughts on the Cattlemen's College held at last week's Cattle Industry Convention in Nashville. There were so many great courses held that I had no way of attending them all. This is where social media comes in handy! I've rounded up a few links from across the web from … Continue reading Cattlemen’s College: Web Roundup
What I Do Best – Keep The Faith
This is gonna be short and sweet and to the point. Catching up on Immunology terms, systems, processes, and all that junk is not kind to me this week, but my mind needs a break once in a while. This week in my seminar class we had a guest speaker giving tips on public speaking … Continue reading What I Do Best – Keep The Faith
Texas Country Wednesday – Pat Green
Now I already know what you're going to say.

The Many Reasons To Love Cattlemen’s Conventions
Where to begin? This has been a very fun week in Nashville and I still have one more day to go. A record 7,000+ cattlemen/women and community members have invaded the Opryland Resort. Every where you look there are advertisements from vendors, equipment sales, and breed association. Too many things to do. Too many people … Continue reading The Many Reasons To Love Cattlemen’s Conventions
Built to Work: The Four Wheeler Farmer
Saw this commercial on Sunday in the middle of the NHL All Star game and thought it pretty appropriate to share. Out here 9 to 5 is actually 5 to 9. Ain't that the truth. Of course, the commercial promotes sale of Honda ATVs, but it's also promoting the hard work of rural lifestyles - … Continue reading Built to Work: The Four Wheeler Farmer
