It’s been a busy week getting the word out about our Montana Running Ranchers relay team and the Team Beef program. This has included sharing the word in a few different television programs across the state. Read more about this year’s Ragnar Relay in a previous post.

Montana Running Ranchers Head to Napa Valley for Ragnar Relay

About the farthest I’ve ever managed to run in a day is a 10k (6 miles) race earlier this year, and other than that I’ve been pretty content with 5 miles or less. You can usually catch me in the gym or on the county roads running a 5k fairly regular. For me, running has […]

My Favorite Super Bowl Ads – that I completely missed out on

When you’re flying out of Helena, Montana, there are two choices for flying out of town. Either you fly out at 6 a.m. or you leave on one of two mid-day flights. And during the winter, you can pretty much bet on delays somewhere along the way. Since I had just returned from the AgChat […]

Ranching gives you a perspective of life… (Video)

Turns out I was writing about the Montana Stockgrowers Association LONG before I ever even knew I would be moving to Montana and working with this great group of ranchers. I’ve now met Heath and Kiley Martinell and their children and know much more about how they contribute to the Montana ranching community. This post […]

Idaho Cattle Convention – Sun Valley, Idaho

I  can’t believe I’ve let a month go by and haven’t updated the blog on my travels in and around Montana. (So I better catch up!) Work has definitely kept me busy and on the go. But I guess that is a good thing! In early November, I had the great opportunity to travel to […]

Turkey welfare and slaughter Video with Dr. Temple Grandin

Over the past several years, I have been engaged in several conversations about transparency, animal welfare, and requests for more information about how livestock make it to our plates. Recently, American Meat Institute has teamed up with Dr. Temple Grandin, a well-know animal scientist who focuses on improving animal welfare practices, especially during slaughter. The […]

Tennessee #SocialBeef Social Media Training

I absolutely love days where I can sit talk with farmers and ranchers and encourage them to reach out of their comfort zone to share their stories. This past week, the Tennessee Beef Industry Council and Tennessee Cattlemen’s Association offered me that opportunity. Lauren Chase and I were both very grateful for the chance to […]
